Start talks, stop Green Hunt: Arundhati Roy

Calling for talks between Maoists and the government, writer Arundhati Roy on Saturday, April 24 demanded an immediate ceasefire on both sides, formal halting of the combing operations and Operation Green Hunt, and resettling people who were rendered homeless in Chhattisgarh's Dantewada district.

Ms. Roy also demanded that details of memoranda of undertaking signed between the government and mining industries, involving tribal regions, be made public.

She was speaking at a public meeting here on ‘Indian state's War on People and the Assault on Democratic Voices'.

It was organised by the Forum Against War on People, a forum of civil society organisations, parties, individuals and social activists.
