PALAKKAD: "Porattam," a revolutionary organisation, has condemned the arrest of the Maoist leader Malla Raji Reddy of Andhra Pradesh from Kochi.
In a statement here on Thursday, Porattam state convener Mundur Ravunni said the arrest was to satisfy the interests of the Left Democratic Front (LDF) government in the State. It was also for protecting some narrow political interests in Kerala.
The statement also condemned the arrest of P. Govindan Kutty, Editor and Publisher of People's March.
The search in the office of the publication by the police was an attack on the freedom of press.
