TRIBALS KILLING: REGISTER POLICE CASE TOO: LOP

In the Kandhamal incident, six innocent tribals have died. They have been killed by police. The Chief Minister is accountable for this. I leave it to the conscience of the Chief Minister to think whether he has taken proper steps in this regard,” said Leader of Opposition (LoP) in State Assembly Narasingha Mishra on Sunday. Speaking at a Press conference here, he said, “The Government has announced an ex-gratia of `5 lakh to each deceased’s family. We demand the compensation amount to be raised to `20 lakh.”
The veteran Congress leader said that apart from a judicial inquiry announced by the Government, let there be police case registered in regard to this crime. An impartial police inquiry is required. This might be a murder case or on some other charges as per law. A criminal offence has been made, he said.
As innocent tribals are being killed frequently on the plea of anti-Maoist operations, it proves that this Government is anti-tribal people, Mishra alleged. He further maintained the Government is unable take steps for development of the backward areas where Maoists are active and keep gaining ground. Instead of being able to kill Maoists, it is killing innocent people and taking credit of its anti-Maoist operations. This is a Nikamma Government, Mishra added.
