Naxalites, belonging to the Communist Party of India-Maoist Group, are now training their guns on foreign direct investment or FDI. This is evident by the recent demands made by naxals after the abduction of two officials and their release later. The key demand was a ban on entry of multinational companies (MNCs), along with four other demands.
"MNCs like Posco should be stopped", naxalite leader, Sabyasachi Panda, alias Sunil, who master-minded the R Udayagiri siege on March 24, said in an interview to two TV channels deep inside the forest. According to him, the government was showering undue favours on MNCs.
