    Nambala Keshava Rao is reportedly the new head of the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist).

    He succeeds one of the topmost leaders of the Naxal-Maoist movement and the party’s general secretary Muppala Laxmana Rao, popularly known as Ganapathy, who has reportedly stepped down from his post to make way for Nambala Keshava Rao aka Basavaraj.

    Though the CPI (Maoist) has made no official announcement, a highly placed source confirmed of the elevation of Basavaraj as the new head of the Maoists.

    The experts working on Left Wing Extremism (LWE) believe that this change in guard is likely to infuse a renewed energy into the Maoist movement, which has relatively been pushed on a back foot due to aggressive posturing by security forces and development measures undertaken by the government.
