Raman Singh get's big cake of cow dung on his face , surrender drama turns out to be flop show
Honourable Chief Minister of Chhattishgarh Raman Singh, director of
The Great Maoist Surrender show which turned out to be a big flop.
The government of Chhattisgarh along with it's pet
programme Salwa-Judum has lost all credibility.
Some people believe that this programme was initially
planned to raise the sagging morale of the Salwa-Judum
goons and state terror police but has now backfired
leading to further demoralisation among the supporters
Fake Maoists at surrender show
Raipur: Chhattisgarh's BJP government has come under fire for getting scores of tribal civilians to surrender as Maoists.
The Congress on Friday said that 79 rebels including seven women, who surrendered before Chief Minister Raman Singh and Home Minister Ramvichar Netam in Wednesday, were innocent tribal civilians who had been persuaded by the government to surrender as Maoists.
The claims of the Congress were boosted with police refusing to provide crime details of a majority of the surrendered Maoists.
"A few have a criminal background. All the surrendered Maoists were Dalam member's a local affiliate of the banned outfit Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) but we do not have their criminal records," a police official told IANS.
Raman Singh described the surrender function as a historic day and provided Rs 1,000 to all the rebels, who took oath of joining the mainstream.
Congress veteran and former chief minister Ajit Jogi questioned the surrender exercise and criticised the Raman government for "staging a ceremony of fake Maoists".
Jogi said the government had forcibly brought "innocent tribals to Raipur from trouble-hit Bastar areas" to claim that they had been achieving success against the leftist militants.
He said that the BJP government should resign on moral grounds for staging a "ceremony of tribal civilians who were branded Maoists for political gains".
Chhattisgarh is the worst of 13 Maoist affected states. About 50,000 tribals of 600 forested villages are being held in to government-run concentration camps in Bastar since June 2005 when Salwa Judum ( a state sponsered terror campaign) against the rebels was initiated.
