In the Red Corridor there are many legislators in the country, who owe their position directly to the machinations of the Maoists. It runs across the political spectrum. Maoists are hence perverting the Indian Constitution in the name of ‘revolution’. The authority of the Constitution cannot remain in suspended animation. The Maoist corridor when viewed in totality with other volatile regions impacted by insurgency constitutes more than 40 percent of Indian territory. It clearly indicates that the secured space in India has shrunk to half. As a consequence the economic space is also becoming restricted. Which respectable industry or business, internal or external, would like to invest in the Red Corridor or the Northeast or in Kashmir?
Recent reports in the media have suggested that top Maoist leader Mupalla Lakshman Rao alias Ganapathy has instructed his cadres to do everything they can to get their jailed leaders out (breaking in or obtaining bails). Maoists are getting restless and are planning targeted actions to free their leaders from jails. A letter recovered by Jharkhand Police during a raid recently revealed Maoists' plan to kidnap Latehar District Collector (DC) Aradhna Patnaik. The letter states that a person working with the DC is in touch with them and that the Maoists should kidnap her before October 15. The plan is to demand release of their leaders (Shyamlalji, Navinji, Comrade Indrajeet) jailed in Daltonganj jail.
There are speculations that the person behind the naxal tactics/techniques of implanting explosive devices on the CRPF Jawan’s dead body or inside his belly (who might have given training to naxals about this surgical technique) is Prabhat Mochi
The Maoists have acquired huge financial and political stake in illegal mining by the Corporate or the mining industry. The illegal mining is under the protection of the Maoists, and the writ of the State is absent.
Speaking exclusively to VK Shashikumar, Jharkhand’s former CM is loud and clear that he is a victim of corporate greed in conspiracy with venal politics.
"The group who is against me first created a hype against me that I had looted the exchequer of 4,000 crores during my tenure as minister and coal minister."
The investigation agencies should also concentrate on the bribe givers and reveal their identities. The government and agencies should not act in a partisan manner (as they usually do) of revealing what is in their political interest and not in their economic interest. Is the government also culpable of bribe taking like Koda allegedly is? All the MoUs signed by Koda should be canceled as they are anti-nation and anti-people. They have been signed for bribes and do not benefit the nation.
