Finally the abductors of Italian tour operator Bosusco Paolo has released today after three week from abduction by Maoist, but a worse fact that raise hostage crisis in Odisha that in place to thanks Odisha govt. he respond aggressively.
His negative behavior is for Naveen Patnaik government which denied offer to set free seven ultras along with Maoist’s 13 demands.
Secretary of the Odisha State Organising Committee of the CPI and Maoist leader Sabyasachi Panda said,”This has created suspicion and the government should make clear how many prisoners are going to be released along with their names.”
He asked government to release all the seven persons whose names listed by him, not five persons as govt. had allowed to release. A demand of stopping of the Green Hunt operation had appealed by him.
On other side, govt. announced that it would free five, not six. In an emergency meeting, chief minister Naveen Patnaik said, “There seems to be some confusion.
Government negotiators and Maoist-appointed mediators had come to a clear conclusion yesterday. I do hope all these will be cleared by them soon.”
The hostage crisis had come into fire while non estimated negotiation between the two mediators and three government officials closed on Saturday with an outcome of release five of the six persons as per government.
However situation for govt. is going to be more critical as the Andhra Odisha Border Special Zonal Committee (AOBSZC) of the CPI(Maoist) demanded to release five more persons for securing the release of the Biju Janata Dal legislator Jhina Hikaka.
The legislator is still in the custody of another southern Maoists group and govt. does not take any action in behalf of this.
Interesting fact is that, in both cases, April 10 had set up as the deadline by the Maoist groups to act on their demands. It is coincide that on same date a court in Rayagada district will deliver its verdict in the case against Subhashree Panda, wife of, Sabyasachi Panda.
