"Chidambaram's offer is of 72 hours. He really doesn't want to talk. He wants to control and dominate the people of jangalmahal here who are talking about their rights and he wants to silence them," Raju, an aide of Kishenji, told a TV news channel.
On the telephone number given to them by the Home
Ministry to fax their proposal, he said, "he (Chidambaram) has
laid many traps. This is Chidambaram's 'natak' (drama)."
"We are willing to ceasefire for 72 days, not just 72 hours if state terror stops," he said.
