The wife of top Maoist leader RK, who died recently after falling ill, lashed out at the Telangana police.
Sirisha alleged that the police had stopped the publication of a book featuring her memories of her late husband.
Addressing media persons in the city, she said that it was common for people to bring out books of memories of anybody. In the book she was aiming to publish, she wanted to include the media stories and photos of RK's meeting with the representatives of the state government in the year 2004, and his arrests.
She alleged that the police had however conducted raids on the printing press and seized all the printed material.
She demanded that the police return the seized books and allow her to publish the book.
Supporting Sirisha, Professor Haragopal alleged that CM K Chandrashekar Rao, who had once said that the agenda of the Maoists was his own agenda, had changed after coming into power and turned fascist.
He said that RK had become popular after taking part in the discussions with the state government in 2004, and that many people had a desire and the right to know about those and about RK's life.
He demanded that the state government give up its dictatorial attitude and allow Sirisha to publish her book.
