Stop anti-Naxal operations or face violence: Panda
Threatening of violence, Sabyasachi Panda has alleged that government has intensified anti-Maoist operations despite the agreement, signed at the time of release of Italian tourists.

IN A fresh audio tape, Odisha organizing committee of the CPI (Maoists) leader Sabyasachi Panda on Sunday said that his party would be forced to renew violence, if the government failed to stop anti-Maoist operation and fullfil the demands agreed by the government at the time of the release of two abducted Italian tourists.

Panda protested the statement of Home Secretary U.N.Behera that the Maoists were not honouring the agreement made during the resolution of the hostage crisis. Panda alleged in the tape that the state government has intensified combing operation in the Maoist areas and raided the camps of the Maoist leaders twice during the last one month.

“This, despite the fact that the Odisha committee has stayed away from violence ever since a ceasefire was announced, following the abduction of the Italians,” Panda said. Instead of abiding by the ceasefire agreement, the police launched, operations (Operation Sabyasachi) after the release of two Italians, he alleged.

As assured by the government, Panda alleged no prisoners have been released so far. His wife Subhashree Panda was released as per the court verdict while Arati Majhi is yet to be released. “The Odisha State Organizing Committee of CPI (Maoists) has not resorted to any violence after the agreement in between the government and the Maoists for the release of two Italians,” added Panda.

Maoists had abducted two Italians Paulo Bosusco and Caudio Kalanjilo on 14th March in Kandhomal district while Kalanjilo was release after 9 days, Bosusco had to remain in Maoist captivity for 29 days.
