Addressing a press conference DGP M Mahender Reddy informed that Ravula Ranjith is the son of late Ravula Srinivas aka Ramanna, Central Committee member & secretary Maoist party. Since his childhood, he was taught about revolutionary ideology and waging war against the State with the objective of establishing a New Democratic Revolution (NDR) through the barrel of a gun.

Though born and brought up in the thick of the Maoist movement, he grasped that there is no relevance and acceptance for the movement in today’s context.
He also appealed to the Maoist cadres to give up arms and join the mainstream.
