Villagers in Maoist dens vow to keep guerrillas out

NAGPUR: Seven tribal hamlets along the Maharashtra-Chhattisgarh border have volunteered to shut out armed Maoists for good, going from laying booby traps for govt forces at the guerrillas‘ behest barely two months ago to braving the fear of a backlash to extricate themselves from the stranglehold of four decades of indoctrination.
Paraynar, Nelgunda, Kucher, Kawande, Gongewada, Midadapalli and Mahakapadi in Bhamragarh taluka sit at the foothills of Abujmarh on the Maharashtra-Chhattisgarh border, housing the headquarters of the proscribed People’s Liberation Guerrilla Army (PLGA).
Theirs is a leap of faith powered by the promise of the development they have missed out on through the decades when Maoists held sway. The guerrillas still strike fear in the hearts of the villagers, but their writ is being slowly erased.
