Ahead of the Chhattisgarh assembly polls, state police have seized banners and posters placed by the Maoists who gave a call for the election boycott in the highly tensed districts Bijapur and Sukma of Bastar region. Earlier in 2018, stating the election process as ‘fabricated’ the Naxalites have issued an order to the villagers to bring the political leaders who visit them during the election campaign to the ‘Jan-Adalat’ (kangaroo court).

The Red forces have posted pamphlets and banners in support of the diktat in the interiors of Bijapur and Sukma and stated that, “Bring them (politicians) who visit you seeking support and votes to the ‘Jan-Adalat’ where decisions would be taken (by us) on their canvassing. But chase away the BJP leaders”.

Speaking on the lines of the poll boycott by Maoists, Vivekanand Sinha, Inspector-General of police told media that “The Maoists have announced the poll boycott. They are holding meetings in the villages and intimidating the villagers. They are asking them not to vote but we are simultaneously carrying out confidence-building measures, visiting tribal hamlets and interacting with the local populations. Our preparations are well in place to ensure free, fair and peaceful elections in the entire Bastar region” he said.
