Naxal faction opposes Maoists' abduction policy
Kolkata: A Naxal faction on Thursday condemned the politics of abduction by Maoists to realise their demands, saying it is a "wrong" policy.
"We are of the opinion that their politics of abduction is wrong. It is a wrong policy," CPI(ML-Liberation) general secretary Dipankar Bhattacharya said.
"We have also noted that governments act only if an important bureaucrat or a VIP is abducted but not in the case of others," he added.
He, however, accused the governments of Chhattisgarh, Odisha and West Bengal of violating human rights.
Bhattacharya criticised the Mamata Banerjee government in West Bengal, which will complete a year in office shortly, for launching attacks on democratic forces.
He said that his party would hold a convention here on June 26 and hold its central committee meeting in Ranchi from May 5.
