Kolkata: The Maoists have for the first
time admitted that Kishenji`s death has dealt a heavy blow to
their organisation and called upon the youth to join the
outfit.

Kishenji, a CPI (Maoist) central committee member, was
killed in an armed encounter with the Joint Forces in
Jangalmahal on November 24, last year.

In a release circulated among some TV channels, the
CPI (Maoist) central committee said that Kishenji`s killing in
Jangalmahal had come as a ``a great blow`` to the organisation
and appealed to the youth to join the outfit ``to fulfil
Kishenji`s cherished dream``.

The central committee asked its state unit in West
Bengal to initiate efforts to draw more youth to the
organisation.
