Maoist posters seized in Bengal's Junglemahal

Kolkata, Aug 15 (IANS): Nearly 25 Maoist posters have been seized from a bus stand in West Bengal's Junglemahal area on Saturday, leading to some consternation in security circles.

According to police, the posters written in red ink by the Communist Party of India-Maoist were seized from Domohani bus stand and Bhulabheda market area under Belpahari police station in Jhargram district this morning. The Maoists had urged the villagers to observe the Independence Day as a 'Black Day'.

Sources said that police was investigating with utmost care as the region was out of the Maoist influence in the past nine years, due to the widespread development drives undertaken by the Mamata Banerjee's government.

In a political masterstroke, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had inducted former Maoist sympathiser Chhatradhar Mahato, who was jailed in 2009 for suspected Maoist links but released after a decade, as TMC Secretary to stall the rise of BJP in West Bengal's Jungalmahal belt, which was once Maoist-infested. Mahato was given a key Trinamool portfolio in the district last month.
