To commemorate literary giant George Orwell’s birth in East Champaran district in Bihar, the CRPF commandant’s residence in Motihari will be named as “George Orwell House”, CRPF sources said today.
According to Parma Shivan, new commandant of 153rd battalion CRPF, Champaran district had seen several great personalities like Mahatma Gandhi and Orwell. Orwell who had the best-seller “Animal Farm” is famous for delving into the reality of living in a communist state.
“I am saddened by the grip of the CPI (Maoist) over champaran and assure that the CRPF would leave no stone unturned to root out the Reds from the area. For this we will take the help of civil police who can help strengthen the relationships with the people under Maoists’ influence,” said Parma Shivan.
Under a civic action plan, the CRPF would impart training to 30 youths of Maoist-infested villages with the help of an NGO to provide them with jobs.
