Maoist Statement

The government – both at the centre and the state (Odisha) – has reduced adivasis into mere exhibition items in attempts to lure domestic and foreign tourists. On the other hand, they invite multinational capitalists to plunder natural and mineral resources in the adivasi heartland and repress voices of resistance by unleashing Operation Green Hunt on adivasis and the common mass. Although the government claims to have amended the so-called laws in February 2012 to put certain checks on tourists visiting adivasi areas, this has turned out to be a blatant lie. The power centres in Delhi and Shahid Nagar are sending tourists to adivasi areas to click naked pictures of the adivasis, and turning them into tourism-friendly commodities. This is an insult to the people.

Because of all these, we have arrested two Italian tourists (one of them is a tourism trader licensed by the state government):

  • (1) Bosusco Paolo, B, Pralesio 10, Condove, Italy.
  • (2) Clavdio Colangelo, via Di Frascati, 215, 00040 Rocca Di Papa, Italy.
