Kolkata: Condemning the life sentence given to rights activist Binayak Sen by a Raipur court, the Maoists warned the Central government of more attacks in the coming year.

"The life imprisonment of Binayak Sen shows the real face of the Indian government. If Binayak Sen is charged with treason then all citizens should be charged with it," a letter undersigned by Maoist spokesperson Bikram said.

Taking responsibility for the killing of seven Forward Block supporters ten days ago and a COBRA personnal in Purulia district, the letter said, "This is our answer to Operation Greenhunt. We take the full responsibility for the killings."

The letter warned that if the anti-Maoist operations were not withdrawn, "there will be more deadly attacks in 2011 and the government should be prepared to take responsibility for it."

It also slammed Left Front partner Forward Bloc, saying that the party has become fascist.

"Our battle with them will continue," the letter stated.
