PALAKKAD: In a letter placed at the media boxes of the Press Club here on Thursday, Maoists alleged that the government is solely responsible for the attack between Maoists and Thunderbolts at Kunjom in Wayanad.
The letter says, on December 7 at 5 27 pm the Maoists and Thunderbolt had an encounter in the forest where there was intense firing between them. It also says that Thunderbolt retreated to areas of safety and started fire after reaching safer zones. The Thunderbolt has been trying to eliminate Kabani Dalam (armed force) and trying to create informers in Adivasi settlements. The Traffic cop of Quick Response Team Pramod was warned by Maoists against this.
In the name of search operations, Thunderbolt has been harassing people and it is unjustifiable. Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala and his team are only trying to eliminate Maoists, but not addressing the real issues of people. The Maoists are fighting on behalf of the people to get them justice and resist against exploitation. The KPCC Chief once said that the root cause of Maoist menace must be eliminated. The root cause here is the suffering of the people and the government must take necessary measures to alleviate their suffering, and eliminating Maoists is not the solution. The letter concludes with the name Jogi, spokesperson of CPI (Maoist) Western Ghats Special Zone.
