Mamata ready to start peace talks with Maoists

Union Minister and Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee addressed a huge rally at Lalgarh yesterday and said peace talks with Maoists should be started immediately.
The minister said she was ready to take the initiative, to visit Dantewada in Chhattisgarh and other affected places to begin the talk process.
Banerjee's statement is being viewed as an attempt to take off from the peace initiatives of Cherukuri Rajkumar or Azad, who was gunned down in an 'encounter' in Adilabad, Andhra Pradesh in early July. Azad was the third in command and the group's chief spokesperson.
Banerjee also said Azad had been murdered by the security forces. “That was not proper. I pay my respects to the departed soul. Azad's peace initiatives should restart immediately,” she said.
