AP govt extends ban on People's War Group
Syed Amin Jafri in Hyderabad
The Andhra Pradesh government has decided to extend the ban on the People's War Group of Naxalites and six other frontal organisations for one more year.
The state cabinet, at its meeting on Thursday, took the decision under the provisions of the AP Public Security Act and declared these seven organisations as unlawful associations. The new order comes into effect from July 23, 2000.
The ban on the Naxalite outfits was first imposed on May 21, 1992 by the Congress government led by N Janardhana Reddy. After being returned to power in December 1994, the N T Rama Rao government suspended it for a few months in 1995.
However, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who took over in September 1995, re-imposed the ban in July 1996 for one year and extended it every year thereafter.
The six frontal organisations are Rythu Coolie Sangham, Singareni Karmika Samakhya, Viplava Karmika Samakhya, Radical Students Union, Radical Youth League and All India Revolutionary Students Federation.
