Much before #UrbanNaxals became a buzzword, we in erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh , actually experienced. From 80s to mid 2000s , AP had a long running battle with Naxals, lost some of our best cops ( Umesh Chandra, Vyas) , political leaders, ordinary people to this.
It was a two front battle, on one hand the regular encounters between the cops and Naxals. On the other hand the #UrbanNaxals in Telugu media, cinema, academia, campuses. It was a living reality for us.
Telugu media had it's own share of #UrbanNaxals , Varavara Rao one of the leading lights. There were others like Balagopal too. Some magazines and newspapers supported them in a guarded manner , some were openly in support of the Naxals.
