Tackling Red terror: Rajnath Singh to hold strategy meet with CMs of Naxal-hit states today

New Delhi: In the aftermath of Naxals’ deadly attack on CRPF jawans in the Sukma district of Chhattisgarh, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will on Monday meet the chief minister of the Naxalim-hit states.

According to ANI, during today’s meeting, situation in ten most Left Wing Extremism affected States will be reviewed. 

Chief Ministers of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Telangana and West Bengal will attend the meeting.

After the Sukma attack, Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said that the Centre will revist its anti-Naxal policy if need arises. 

An official release earlier informed that a holistic review of the situation will be undertaken covering security and development issues, particularly infrastructure building.

The meet will also focus on devising new strategies to ensure rapid development in Left Wing Extremism-affected areas.

A Home Ministry official said yesterday that the conclave is expected to discuss ways to revamp intelligence gathering mechanism, take a close look at ongoing operations against Naxalites, identify problem areas and devise ways to minimise casualties among the security forces.

District Magistrates and Superintendents of police of 35 worst-hit districts, besides heads of paramilitary forces and intelligence agencies will take part in the deliberations.
