A Naxalite organisation on Tuesday disapproved of activities of the Maoists saying they were not serving the interests of the tribals in Lalgarh.
"We don't support the Maoist activities which have, in fact, not helped the democratic movement in the tribal-dominated areas," general secretary of the CPI (ML-Liberation), Dipankar Bhattacharya, told PTI here.
However, Bhattacharya demanded that the Centre stop the anti-Maoist operation in Lalgarh forthwith and talk to the tribal bodies to redress their grievances.
"The tribals have been subjected to immense torture by the security forces who should be immediately withdrawn from Lalgarh and other areas and talks be initiated by the government with the tribals to sort out their problems," he said.
Bhattacharya said the Maoists should "rethink" their mode of operations, but slammed the Left Front government for its "double-speak" on police operations in Lalgarh.
He said the Marxist party was "ignorant" of the "immense sufferings" the innocent tribals underwent at the hands of the security forces.
Bhattacharya did not spare Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee either, alleging that after becoming part of the Central government, she only talks of "police, torture and Disturbed Areas Act" forgetting people's welfare.
