Naxalites and Maoists exploiting rural populace

Malkangiri, Oct 22 (ANI): Even as India is treading on the path of development, the rebel groups within the country are trying to hold it back, for vested interest.

Though the theory and practice of these movements are questionable, they liberally exploit the anger and frustration of the rural populace, particularly the tribal communities, who want development. Recently, eleven Maoists, including a woman cadre, surrendered after a brief encounter with the police in Malkangiri district of Odisha. Oct 22, 2013
