Maoists are continuously killing innocent people in Bastar and the Chhattisgarh government is doing nothing to end the murders, Leader of Opposition Dharamlal Kaushik charged on Wednesday.
“So far Covid has killed 50 people in Bastar while in the past four months more than 60 people have been killed in Maoist violence. Every third day a person is dying due to Naxal violence," Kaushik said in a press release.
"On the question of action against Naxals, the state government is mum,” he said.
He alleged that the government was hiding the true number of deaths in Maoist violence.
“The state government is claiming that Naxals have weakened in Bastar. Then how are Maoists placing their posters and banners in different district headquarters?” he asked
