With the outlawed Communist Party of India (Maoist) planning to create disturbances to mark its decade of formation this September, police is bracing up to counter any such move and make people aware about the "futility" of the rebel movements.

The Maoists are preparing several programmes to suit the occasion all over the country in their strongholds and to demonstrate their influence even after facing critical situations in several regions, as per intelligence inputs.

On the direction of a central committee of the banned outfit, its branches - regional bureaus, state committees and special zonal committees - have released circulars on the significance of completion of ten years along with the activities to be carried out during this period in their respective regions, a senior Intelligence Bureau (IB) official told PTI.

The Maoist Communist Centre (MCC) and People's War Group (PWG) merged to form CPI(Maoist) on September 21, 2004, and since then they have been observing foundation week every year from September 21 to 27.

To thwart the efforts of the Maoists, police is also gearing up to intensify operations in the LWE (left wing extremism) hit areas.

"We will intensify our operations during this period and would like to educate the populace about futility of war waged by the Maoists as it has adversely affected development and peace of the area," Chhattisgarh additional director general of police (anti-Maoist operations) RK Vij told PTI.

"We are well aware of the situation and have issued necessary instructions to officials in various regions in this connection. Every suspicious activity is under scanner," Vij said.
