Police in Maharashtra have claimed to intercept what they said was the internal communication of Maoists, who allegedly a ‘Rajiv Gandhi-type’ assassination of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
News agency ANI flashed the purported copy of the Maoists’ letter, that read, “Modi-led Hindu fascism is bulldozing its way into the lives of indigenous Adivasis. In spite of big defeats like Bihar and West Bengal, Modi has successfully established BJP government in more than 15 states. If this pace continues, then it would mean immense trouble for the party on all fronts. Greater suppression of dissent and more brutal form of Misson 2016 (OGH).”
Modi faces the toughest electoral fight of his life next year when he will seek a new mandate to remain as India’s prime minister for the second term. The recent electoral setbacks coupled with considerable unity among opposition parties have made his aspiration to be India’s PM for the second term a distant dream.
Few days ago, another pro-government channel, Times Now, had claimed to have busted the so-called plans to assassinate Modi.
According to ANI, Pune Joint Commissioner of Police (CP) Ravindra Kadam claimed that his forces had recovered “pen drive, hard disk and some other documents” which were later sent to forensics. Pune Police reports to Maharashtra government headed by the BJP.
