Ending all the hopes that he would surrender, sacked Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda, in an audio message has ruled out any possibility of returning to mainstream and giving up violence.
SABYASACHI PANDA, leader of Odisha Maobadi Party has ruled out any possibility of returning to mainstream in an audiotape released to the media on Friday said.
The sacked Maoist leader Panda however said that he would consider returning to mainstream life based on an appeal signed by nine Gandhian leaders, once the government stops adopting violent methods to exploit and harass innocent people.
Panda also described himself as a ‘true democrat’ and the government as the ‘oppressor’. “The Gandhian leaders who sent an appeal for my surrender should hold discussions with the government to prevent the ongoing violence,” Panda said in the audiotape.
Panda explained that they didn’t adopt violence while the talks for the release of two abducted Italians were going on. “Even after the release of two Italians, we continued refraining from violence. But the other hand, the government has been playing hide-and-seek while targeting to kill me,” Panda added.
