Kandhamal: In a fresh poster put up by red rebels of CPI (Maoist) Budaguda chhak in Baliguda, the Maoists have supported the bandh called by Nabanirman Krushak Sangathan (NKS) on February 21.
In the posters, they have mentioned that they want concrete solutions to the issues of farmers. In a different poster, they have also alleged that the ‘fascist’ Modi Government is responsible for the Pulwama terror attacks and the current situation calls for independence of Kashmir.
The State Government on Monday appealed the Nabanirman Krushak Sangathan (NKS) to withhold its strike on February 21 in view of the upcoming matric examinations. "Keeping the interests of the students in mind, the State Government requests the Nabanirman Krushak Sangathan to cancel the bandh called on February 21," the letter stated.
