Malkangiri: Yet again, regardless of the State Government’s tight security in Naxal-affected Malkangiri, the rebels reportedly were successful in organising a camp on the Odisha-Andhra border on Saturday.

As per sources, the Maoist camp was held at the border of the two states at Basuguda forest area with hundreds of people of nearly 10 to 12 villages attending it. This camp was held under the leadership of Maoist leader Sudhir.

During the camp, the leaders opposed the Gurupriya Bridge that was recently inaugurated by Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik. They allege that it will act against the tribals as it help the State government to plunder natural resources from cutoff areas in Malkangiri district interests of the tribals in the cut-off region in Malkangiri.

A memorial for the cadres killed in police firing was also set up while leaders urged people to strengthen Maoist organisation.

This is the second time when the Maoists have opposed the recently inaugurated Gurupriya Setu. Earlier on July 29, the rebels reportedly were successful in organising a camp on the Odisha-Andhra border at Ralegada panchayat in Malkangiri.
