A front runner
Hidma’s experience as a leader of the current Battalion-1, which is operational in Bastar. He is a pioneer among Maoists.
Age is his ally, as different competitors are either more seasoned than him or keeping chronic weakness. K Sudarshan (65) has been experiencing various diseases. The other competitor, M Venugopal, who is accountable for the Chhattisgarh-Maharashtra line zone, isn’t referred to be pretty much as forceful as Hidma.
If Hidma gets chosen, it will go about as a spark for the ancestral adolescents in Bastar, which is likewise an enrollment ground. The Maoist unit has been experiencing labor deficiency for a long while.
Hidma is an expert tactician in hit-and-run combat. It’s said that the Bastar landscape is in the rear of his hand.

“There was news that Hidma had become a focal board part; however, it isn’t correct. He’s the commandant of the Battalion-1 in Bastar.
The conceivable determination of ancestral face Hidma as Central Military Commission boss will offer teeth to Naxal activity in Bastar, which is what Basava Raju needs.
