Fresh anti-poll posters by Maoists have surfaced in Rayagada, leaving local leaders worried over the conduct of peaceful Lok Sabha and Assembly elections in the Maoist-hit region.
Maoist posters and banners were found at Parsali panchayat office of Kalyansingpur block on Saturday where the ultras urged upon Dongria Kondhs residing in Niyamgiri hill to boycott the elections. Police said they have recovered few posters and suspect it to be the handiwork of the local Maoist supports.
Few days back, similar posters were found in interior Majhiguda and Dasmantpur panchayats of Koraput where ultras had asked the locals not to exercise their franchise on April 10 and accused all political parties of being anti-poor. The posters also asked the people not to let politicians enter villages for campaigning.
