SHIMOGA: Karnataka Komu Souharda Vedike has condemned the inclusion of progressive thinkers, journalists and farmer leaders in the list of Naxal sympathisers.
Speaking to reporters here on Monday, Vedike secretary K L Ashok alleged that the State Government was trying to suppress the progressive movement and freedom of expression by releasing the list and was protecting the interests of communal outfits.
The list of Naxal sympathisers has disclosed the hidden agenda of the state government, he stated.
He also added that a case would be filed soon against police officer Shankar Bidari who disclosed the list.
