KORAPUT: The Maoists would continue their armed fight against police for the rights of poor in tribal areas, stated secretary of Koraput-Srikakulam Divisional Committee of Maoists in a press release on Monday.
“Maoist outfits in Narayanpatna have been working since long for tribal rights and have been successful in ending the harassment by landlords. The liquor trade has been stopped and the land of tribals returned to them through revolutionary means,” it stated.
Opposing the Green Hunt operation of police in the region, Daya stated in the release that the efforts of the State and the Centre to stop Maoist movement in Narayanpatna would fail as they would continue their revolution. “The police operation has motivated the landlords to exploit the tribals again. Our fight is for saving the tribal land, forest and ensuring that the tribals have their share of all round development,” it stated.
