Malkangiri: There was a time when people were scared of Maoists and were not taking part in the election process in Swabhiman Anchal of Malkangiri district, which is considered as the stronghold of red rebels. However, now the time has changed. The people are no more scared of the Maoists as an election poster has been pasted on the war room of Maoists.
According to reports, election posters and banners of several candidates and parties have been pasted around the war room of Maoists situated at Totaguda village under Jantri of the district. The Maoists used to prepare strategies to carry out their activities including attacking the security forces.
This has reportedly become possible due to the deployment of the security forces in the Swabhiman Anchal region.
