Charandas Mahant, the Congress chief in Chhattisgarh, alleged that the ruling BJP had alliances with the Naxals and said, "People of Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh, disguised as Naxals, are roaming in the jungles of Bastar."
Other allegations included looting of natural resources. Mahant said,"Natural resources, including iron ore, coal, rivers and forests have been given to industrialists without any transparency." Mahant also said that the government was forcing poor farmers to sell their lands.
The chargesheet was released at a press conference in Raipur, highlighting that the government was unsuccessful in curbing Naxalism.
