Maoist attack: No need to panic, says Minister

Asserting that government would deal firmly with Maoists in Kerala, State Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala on Tuesday said there was no need for any anxiety in the wake of the attacks on forest offices and a Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet in Palakkad and Waynad districts by suspected ultras.

“The attacks were carried out by people having sympathy for Maoists and their movements were being closely monitored,” Chennithala told reporters at Thrissur.

He also said government would take strong action against such activities.

State Forest Minister Thiruvanchoor Radhakrishnan, who visited the forest office ransacked by suspected Maoists in Palakkad on Monday, said it was an attempt to sabotage democracy in 
the country.

All sections in society should unite to defeat these forces, he added.
