Vydugula Aruna, 43, who hails from Warangal rural district of Telangana, was also associated with the Maoist movement for over two decades. She was State Committee Member, Bihar-Jharkhand Special Area Committee.
The couple surrendered before Telangana Director General of Police M. Mahender Reddy saying they were disillusioned with the party for straying away from its objective to work for the people.
The couple also decided to leave the organization due to atrocities on women cadre, forcing some women Maoists to commit suicide. Maoist chief Nambala Keshava Rao alias Basvaraj's wife Ramakka alias Sharada also committed suicide in 2010.
"The party functioning has deteriorated and is more on the lines of criminal gangs who loot people and amass wealth for their development using party as a platform," the police quoted the surrendered Maoist as saying.
He claimed that vexed with the leadership which is working to serve their vested interests, many cadres are willing to give up extremism.
