The police on Sunday seized naxalite literature that provoked the sentiments of people about failure of the government in different fronts, and appealed them to take up arms against injustice.

The state legislature session is going on in Nagpur.

Earlier, one naxalite from Bastar of Chhattisgarh was arrested here near Railway station just one day before of beginning of the winter session of state legislature.

Sources said that at least 12 pamphlets of People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA), the military wing of the CPI (Maoist), was found on a roadside bench in the Ganeshpeth area.

The pamphlets, which were issued on the occasion of 10th anniversary of PLGA, appealed people, and particularly younger generation, to joined the organisation against the system that exploited them.

The pamphlets said armed struggle was the only way to stop the injustice against the have-nots. The anti-naxalite squad here said that every year PLGA observe a week-long bandh from December 1, but this year it appealed to all for celebrating the foundation day for a month, on the occasion of its 10-year formation.

It has decided to “mobilise” people on the occasion in its “liberating zone,” particularly the interior areas of Gadchiroli and Gondia, in support of the Maoist movement in those areas.

It was the second such incident when Maoist literature was found in the Ganeshpeth area. In May, Maoist pamphlets were found near the Ganeshpeth police station.

Ravindra Kadam, the Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP), anti-naxalite squad, said police were investigating the matter. “No one was arrested in this regard, so far,” he said.
