PATNAGARH (BALANGIR):Ahead of celebration of PLGA Week by the banned outfit, beginning Wednesday, Maoist banners and posters re-appeared in different parts of Balangir district on Tuesday.

With the killing of Naib Sarpanch of Bagdor, Alekh Majhi, on November 23 still fresh in the minds of the people, appearance of banners on Patnagarh-Khaprakhol road has led to panic among the locals.

The rebels are active in Gandhamardan hill range which shares its border with Sunabeda Wildlife Sanctuary.

The appearance of banners and posters indicate that the Maoists are marking their presence felt in the area.

With drought gripping the area triggering distressed migration, the Maoists seem to have identified the pocket as a soft target.

The banners and posters in Bankabihar Chowk and Jogimunda, both about 10 km from Patnagarh police station, Bankibahal, Dedarha Chowk besides Baijalsagar, Gambhari Chowk under Khaprakhol police limits called upon villagers to celebrate PLGA Week.
