Hollow Maoists ideology forced these naxals to surrender


New Delhi, Nov 4: Fed up with hollow Maoist ideology is what a statement issued by nine naxalites read after they surrendered.

Nine Maoists had surrendered at Bijapur in Chattisgarh dealing a major blow to the naxal movement which is observing a bandh to protest the encounter along the Andhra-Odisha border conducted recently.

'Fed up with hollow Maoist ideology'

The naxals turned themselves in stating that the ideology being followed by the Maoists is hollo. For the security forces involved in counter insurgency operations against the naxals this has come as a blessing.

Not only does the surrender of the nine top naxalites affect the movement but terming the ideology as hollow would act as a deterrent to many trying to join the movement.

Officials say that such statements must be used in awareness drives. There is a great deal of misunderstanding among many persons and they feel that the Maoists are following the right ideology. By terming the ideology as hollow, the movement of these naxalites stands exposed, the officer also says.

When the nine naxalites turned themselves in, they also said that the forest life was harsh. Bijapur Additional Superintendent of Police Mohit Garg said that the naxalites have also disclosed crucial details regarding the outfits. Further he also added that an encouragement amount of Rs 10,000 was given to each of the Maoists who surrendered.
