Posters demanding the withdrawal of anti-Maoist operations were found in Baharampur town in West Bengal’s Murshidabad Wednesday, hours before Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee’s visit to inaugurate a drinking water project, police said.

The posters were pasted on the wall of a school, a Communist Party of India-Marxist office and the district court, police sources said.

The posters denounced the central and state governments for their joint operation against the Maoists in various parts of the country including in West Midnapore district’s Lalgarh area.

“Oppose the war let loose by the state forces on the tribals,” the posters said. Baharampur is about 200 km north of Kolkata.
