Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh government has extended by one year ban on Communist Party of India (Maoist) and six of its front organisations with effect from today.
"The government has reviewed the matter and is of the opinion that the Communist Party of India (Maoist) is continuing to indulge in unlawful activities and its unlawful activities if not stopped, will constitute a serious danger and menace to public order, peace and tranquillity," state General Administration Department Principal Secretary (Political) Ajay Misra said in an order extending the ban on the outfit.

Accordingly, the government declared the CPI (Maoist) to be an ‘unlawful association’ under subsections (1) and (4) of Section 3 of the Andhra Pradesh Public Security Act, 1992, for a further period of one year from August 17, the Principal Secretary said in the order.

Six front organisations of the CPI (Maoist) All India Revolutionary Students Federation, Viplava Karmika Samakhya, Singareni Karmika Samakhya, Radical Students Union, Ryot Coolie Sangham and Radical Youth League have also been declared unlawful associations under the AP Public Security Act.

The state Cabinet that met under the chairmanship of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy late last night approved the extension of ban on the Maoists and other outfits for one more year. The ban on Maoists and its frontal organisations has been in force in the state since 2005.
