Three-pronged strategy to combat naxalites in Bihar

Three-pronged strategy to combat naxalites in Bihar

Patna, July 05: With a view to check activities of the outlawed CPI (Maoist), Bihar Government is evolving a three-pronged strategy involving mounting an offensive against the underground outfits, strengthening intelligence network and undertaking efficient implementation of development schemes.

"A concrete action plan combining development initiative with police action to check Maoists activities is being prepared", official sources said today.

Measures to tackle the naxalites were discussed at length when Chief Minister Nitish Nitish Kumar reviewed the law and order situation at a high-level meeting here yesterday.

State home department sources said the state government was preparing a fresh list of the naxalites operating in the 14 Naxal-hit districts, while another list of hardcore militants was also being prepared.

The chief minister was of the opinion that the much-publicised 'Aapki Sarkar Aapke Dwar' programme should be effectively implemented to tackle the problems of poverty and unemployment at the grassroots level and government's welfare programmes be properly highlighted.

State Chief Secretary A K Choudhary, Home Commissioner Afzal Amanullah and Director General of Police Ashish Ranjan Sinha attended the meeting.

Sources said Kumar suggested care should be taken for human rights protection while firmly dealing with the naxalites.

The meeting came close on the heels of killing of nine people, including five policemen, in simultaneous attacks by the Maoists on a police station and a outpost in Rohtas district on last Saturday.
