Expressing concern over the increasing presence of paramilitary forces along the Godavari river course and the recent aerial survey conducted by the DGP and the CRPF top brass of Charla (Khammam) and Dandakaranya (Chhattisgarh), Viplava Rachayitala Sangham (Virasam) member Vara Vara Rao has claimed that the government is planning to bomb those places to flush out Maoists.
Addressing mediapersons here on Monday, he said the government developed an airport near Rajahmundry to effectively utilise unmanned aircraft for doing a survey and bomb the areas of Chhattisgarh and Odisha which are known to have a heavy presence of Maoists and their sympathisers.
He alleged that the government was taking up construction of new highways connecting eight districts _ Adilabad, Karimnagar, Warangal, Khammam, East Godavari, Visakhapantam, Vizianagaram and Srikakulam _ to oppress people, particularly tribal.
LITERARY SCHOOL: Virasam will be conducting a two-day Literary School at Sundaraiah Vigyana Kendram in Hyderabad on January 11 and 12 with an aim to promote revolutionary literature and to make people aware of the oppressive ways of the state.
Chalasani Prasad, another member of Virasam, said the two-day programme would focus on the different facets of revolutionary writing and the need for it, and also on the state’s oppressive measures such as Green Hunt, globalisation and economic reforms.
He said the Adivasis (tribal), who have been struggling hard for eons to maintain their culture against all odds, are being oppressed by the state in various ways.
Vara Vara Rao said the venue was named after Communist leader the late Raj Bahadur Gaur and the dais after Vijaya Madakam.
