Threat to development: Maoists blow up under-construction school in Latehar

Latehar, Nov 5 (ANI): Maoists resorting to violence and arson is not new. Their rampant attempts to hinder development work in recent times showcases beyond doubt the fear they have in their minds to cease progress in society. Further it seems they fear education to greater extent, more so because an educated individual is an informed individual, something the left wing extremists find hard to digest. Recently, Maoists blew up a portion of an under-construction school in Latehar district of Jharkhand, as the rebels tried to instill fear among the poor villagers. The rebels had threatened the contractors not to start with the construction of the school. However, the authorities took the threats lightly and began the construction work. Nov 5, 2013
