PATNA: Maoists in eastern India have announced huge vacancies in the organization and are seeking CVs from the interested candidates to carry forward their “armed struggle”.
The recruitment drive which began on December 2 will go for a full month until January 2, 2019, say Maoists’ posters.
The whole story of rebel’s recruitment drive going on in the rural parts of Bihar and Jharkhand state came to light after the security forces stumbled upon several hand-written posters pasted in the countryside. Several such posters were found in the Imamganj block of Gaya district in Bihar.
The posters ask the interested young boys and girls to drop their CVs in the drop boxes to be put up in every village and community centres. It’s, however, now clear how many people have submitted the application forms.
The drive has been launched by the Bihar-Jharkhand Special Area Committee of the People’s Liberation Guerilla Army (PGLA), a splinter group of Communist Party of India (Maoist).
“This is for the first time that the rebels have publicly announced to fill up vacancies. We have taken it seriously and are trying to get near the people trying to revive the Maoist outfit,” a senior official with central para-military forces told the media on Tuesday.
“The police are aware of this development and chalking out strategy to counter this design,” a local police official Anil Kumar Singh said.
The rebels want more manpower to boost up the organization and carry forward its armed struggle.
The rebels face cadre crisis after several top Maoist commanders and cadres were either killed in encounters with security forces or were arrested during the ongoing “Operation Green Hunt”.
At presently, five districts out of Bihar’s total 38 and 14 districts from Jharkhand’s total 24 are said to be severely affected with Maoist activities.
