New Delhi, Nov 7: The Naxals have been extorting money from the rich and sending their children to expensive institutions a report by the Maharashtra police states.
Speak of double standards, the naxals on one hand tell the villagers that democracy is anti people and the rich should be done away with and on the other they send their children to expensive institutions.
List of naxals who have sent their children to reputed institutes:
Devkumar alias Nishanth Arvind, a naxal leader has sent his son to the IIT Kanpur to study chemical engineering.
Malliraji Reddy, a commander has sent his daughter, Snehalatha to a law school after she completed her B.Sc.
Sugulari Chinnanna's elder son works in a multi national company after having completed his B.Tech.
K K Vijayanna a naxal leader has a son who is working at Kochi, Kerala for a software company.
Gudsa Usendi's daughther works in an IT firm while his son is completing his dental course.
The list above comprises names of powerful naxal leaders who have often preached to the villagers that they should not send their children to schools. In addition to this the naxals have always made schools their primary targets.
There are several incidents that have been reported in the recent years where naxals have attacked or blown up schools in villages. Officials say that the schools are the targets because naxals want to scare the villagers against sending their children to schools.
Naxals realize that un-educated villagers are their biggest strength. If they are educated then they would question the ancient ways of the naxals.
However now thanks to this report released by the Maharashtra police, the double standards are exposed. This report will be circulated among various states fighting naxals.
The police would then take this report to the villagers and give them proof of the double standards that are being adopted by the villagers. This would be an interesting exercise bound to pay dividends in the war against the naxalites for whom the villagers are the backbone of the movement.
