Naxals threatening villagers from attending PM’s Bijapur meeting

Police sources have been tipped that naxals are also convening meetings

With the Prime Minister Narendra Modi set to visit Chhattisgarh on April 14, his program is now announced to be to inaugurate the Ayushman Bharat Yojana, healthcare program, from Jangla in Bijapur.

He is also expected to inaugurate many other projects and lay foundation stones for other projects.

But even as the naxals have been blatant in carrying out the strikes on the security personnel ahead of the visit, they are now also threatening the rurals not to take part in the PM’s rally.

Police sources have been tipped that naxals are also convening meetings in different villages of restive Bijapur and warning the locals against participating in such public meeting.

Intel inputs suggest that such a warning was issued to the villagers of Bhairamgarh and other remote parts of the district.

The rurals have also been asked to resist any attempts from party people to get them to the public meeting site.

This comes in wake of the fact that BJP has targeted one lakh masses in the public meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi while in Bijapur.

The naxals, despite all tall claims of security, have so far been successful in throwing pamphlets and banners near Mahadev ghat on Bijapur –Bhopalpatnam road.

In these pamphlets, the red rebels have alleged that central government is merely selling off precious natural resources of Chhattisgarh to corporate in the name of development.

It remains to be seen how many of the rurals turn up in the Prime Minister’s meeting in Jangla.
