Rona Wilson: the JNU alumnus who is accused of plotting PM Modi’s assassination

Earlier today we had reported how a sensational letter was recovered by the Pune police from suspected Maoist sympathiser and Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) alumnus Rona Wilson’s house in Delhi, wherein it was suggested that Maoists were planning a Rajiv Gandhi type assassination plot to target Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his road shows. Wilson and four others were recently arrested by the Pune police over charges of inciting the Bhima Koregaon violence in January.

A copy of this letter which was put up by ANI in a tweet, implied that if the BJP’s electoral victories continue they would pose a serious threat to the Maoists. Thus it claimed that Kisan and a few other “senior comrades” had proposed concrete steps to end the Modi Raj. The letter then claims that these steps include engineering a Rajiv Gandhi type assassination.

The letter acknowledged that the plan sounded suicidal and that they would most likely fail, but urged the need for the party to deliberate on it. The letter incidentally also sought Rs 8 crore in cash to procure an annual supply of M4 gun along with 4 lakh rounds of ammunition.

As per a biodata given by the Indian Express, Wilson who hails from Kerala is a Delhi based public relations secretary of the Committee for Release of Political Prisoners (CRPP). The report claims that he is an active campaigner against laws like Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and Armed Forces (Special Powers) Acts.

The report also claimed that Wilson is a supposed “close aide” of Delhi University professor GN Saibaba who was convicted in March 2017 for waging a war against India via his Maoist links and anti-national activities. Saibaba was awarded the life imprisonment by the Gadchiroli sessions court. The report also stated that the police are of the belief that following Saibaba’s conviction, it was Rona started coordinating between the urban and jungle-based left-wing extremists.

Back in 2011, had denied links with Maoists, claiming that CRPP takes up issues related to all political prisoners, including Muslims and Maoists. In 2005, when he was pursuing Ph D in JNU, he was summoned by Delhi police and questioned for his association with SAR Geelani, former Delhi University professor who was arrested for sedition and was also allegedly involved in the Parliament attack in 2001.
