Maoist Posters Protest Modiís 2-Day Odisha Visit

Nearly a week after the suspected Maoists attacked Doikalu railway station in the district and left behind some posters protesting against the proposed visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the state, the left wing extremists today once again called upon the people, especially tribals of Rayagada and neighbouring districts, in fresh posters to oppose the same.

Two such hand written materials in the name of Odisha State Committee of CPI (Maoist) were found put in a tree at Sikarpai here in Rayagada district. One of the posters read "Oppose Modi's visit to Odisha on April 14,15 and his land acquisition Act". It also appealed to the people to oust Vedanta company and save Niyamgiri hills.

Notably, suspected rebels had triggered a blast and ransacked Doikalu station on March 31 leaving behind some posters.

In one of the posters, the attackers had opposed the proposed two-day visit of the Prime Minister to Odisha on April 15 and 16 to attend BJP's national executive meeting.

Some posters also had criticised non-Odia officers being appointed to senior posts in the state police as well as administration.
