Maoists call 24-hour Bharat Bandh to protest Obama visit

Maoists called for a 24-hour nationwide shutdown on November 8 to protest US Prez Obama`s visit.

Kolkata: Maoists called for a 24-hour
nationwide shutdown on November 8 to protest against the
visit of US President Barack Obama.

"The Maoist Central Committee will observe a 24-hour
Bharat Bandh on November 8," Maoist Central Committee member
Kishenji said PTI over the phone from an undisclosed location.

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress president
Sonia Gandhi were out to sell the country to American
imperialism and Obama`s visit to the country was just another
step in the process, Kishenji alleged.

The elusive Maoist leader also termed CPI-M`s protest
programmes over Obama`s visit on the same date as a "drama".

"Today`s CPI-M and all other Communist parties in the
country have turned into an integral part of the capitalist
culture to exploit people," he claimed.
