ROURKELA: The CPI (Maoist) outfit has given a call to observe Independence Day as ‘Black Day’. Secretary of the Dakshin Chhota Nagpur Committee of the outfit identified only as Samarjee over telephonic communication intimated to some local newspaper offices about the outfit’s diktat.

Samarjee acting as spokesperson for the outfit said the ‘so-called’ freedom was meant for capitalist forces while the poor and downtrodden were yet to be freed from the bondage and taste the fruit of real freedom. Exhorting all to hoist black flags he warned the violators would be punished severely.

Security forces in the Sundargrh district on the Orissa-Jharkhand border continue to be on high alert for the Independence Day tomorrow
