Maoists change strategy

“The huge catch of explosive material at Paidiparru village near Tanuku town recently is an indication that Maoists have changed their strategy of taking shelter,” the official said. This could be an attempt by the Naxals to regain control over Andhra Pradesh, he said. The huge dump explosive material was recovered after the killing of two top Maoists in an encounter last month. One of the slain Maoist leaders Kondal Reddy was operating his activities from Paidiparru village where he took a room on rent posing as a scrap dealer. Based on his dairy seized from the encounter site, police searched houses in the area.

The surfacing of two top Maoist leaders—-Shakamuri Appa Rao and Kondal Reddy, killed in encounter last month, gave credence to the inputs that they visited the State with an intention to revive the activities in Nallamalla forests which was once known to be fortress of naxal activities, he said.

After recovery of arms dump in a residential area of Paidiparru village, the Director General of  Police (DGP) R R Girish Kumar had said, “Maoists in order to prove their existence want to commit some sensational offences and create terror in the minds of common people.
Intelligence inputs suggest that Maoist action teams are roaming in the State in trying to re-build the organisation.”
