After Salt Lake posters, top cop admits to rise in Maoist activity

KOLKATA: Director general of state police Bhupinder Singh on Thursday conceded that the Maoist menace had raised manifold in West Bengal in the last
ten years.

This is evident from the fact that the Maoists put up posters in a posh Salt Lake locality on Tuesday evening, which was the first day of the Peoples' Liberation Guerrilla Army's "raising week".

In the posters, they appealed to citizens to protest the price hike of essential commodities. They also demanded trial of both Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee and Mamata Banerjee in front a people's court and slammed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union home minister P Chidambaram alike for their "oppressive tactics" against their "mass movement".

Handwritten Maoist posters were found at the BD Market area, and the walls of adjacent the Bidhan Nagar Government school.
