Kolkata: Maoists on Monday said the police
crackdown on yoga guru Baba Ramdev and his supporters to end
their agitation against corruption was a "fascist" move.
"The crackdown on Baba Ramdev by the Congress
government shows its fascist character," a Maoist state
committee member said.
Alleging that the UPA government was promoting
corruption and blackmoney, he said, "The kingpins of the 2G
spectrum scam are going scotfree... The government has taken
action against smaller fries as eyewash."
He also alleged that atrocities were being committed
in the name of the anti-Maoist operations by the joint forces.
