Ban on CPI (Maoist) continues in Andhra Pradesh
extending the ban on CPI (Maoist) and six of its frontal organisations for one more year with effect from Tuesday (Aug 17).
The ban was imposed under the Andhra Pradesh Public Security Act, 1992.
Besides CPI (Maoist), its frontal organisations -- Radical Youth League, Ryot Coolie Sangham, Radical Students Union, Singareni Karmika Samakhya, Viplava Karmika Sangham and All India Revolutionary Students Federation -- have been banned for a further period of one year.
The state government had imposed a ban on CPI (Maoist) and its frontal organisations on August 17, 2005 following failure of peace talks initiated by the Congress government. Since then it has been extending the ban every year.
"The government has reviewed the position and is of the opinion that the Communist Party of India (Maoist) is continuing to indulge in unlawful activities. The unlawful activities, if not stopped, will constitute a serious danger and menace to public order, peace and tranquillity," Principal Secretary (Political) in the General Administration Department R M Gonela said in the order.
