Karnataka : ‘Bullet with bullet’ policy for naxals November 30, 2005

Posted by naxalwatch in Uncategorized.


Director General and Inspector General of Police (DG and IGP) B S Sial on Tuesday urged the Government to lift the ban on recruitment of police personnel and accord clearance for the integrated signalling and traffic management system to decongest Bangalore City traffic in the next five years.

At the inaugural of the two-day Senior Police Officers conference, Mr Sial drew the attention of the chief minister to various pending proposals of the police department. The proposals include sanction of additional 15,040 posts of civil police personnel and 6,744 posts of armed police personnel. In addition, Mr Sial also urged the chief minister to consider permitting families of deceased personnel to continue occupying the government quarters; provide free education up to degree level and jobs to the children of police personnel who die during operations; provide uniform allowance of Rs 4,500 per annum and sanction Rs 300 per month as ration money.

On the naxal menace, he said the State police were well equipped to face the challenge and warned the Maoists that if they failed to shun firearms, the police too would not hesitate to use firearms. Intelligence inputs indicate that the efforts of the Maoists to recruit young tribal boys and girls has failed, he said. A comprehensive economic and development package will go a long way in dealing with the naxal menace, he said. Home Secretary Sudhakar Rao said the naxal issue should not be looked at from a socio-economic angle alone, but as a law and order problem.

He also underlined the need for police-public interface and added that police should be accountable to people.

Mr Sial said the two-day conference will discuss the measures related to prevention and detection of crime, maintenance of law and order, traffic management, besides social, regional, linguistic and caste related issues and tensions, protection to Dalits and women. Mr Sial said that the immediate challenges facing the police was the Maoist activities, organised crime, cyber crime and the Datta Jayanthi celebrations. The thrust of the conference is to deliberate on ways and means to bring in greater professionalism in the police at all levels, he said.

Even when the police personels are not rewarded properly, why they should be fighting against and terrorists? Can any higher officer tell the world that “Every hero who has fought against the naxal manace is properly rewarded?” “Is it correct that every gallantary act is being neglected and the same men/officer is humiliated by the same force in the pretext of enquiry and what not?” “Is it not a fact that after a heroic act the fate of the men/officer will be left alone to himself rather than providing him with any modren weapons like AK 47?” “Why they are not being posted to any good place of posting after any successful encounter as a reward of his gallantary Act?” ” Why the superior officers are keeping absolute silence even after prompt,true and successful encounters, inspite of the bad and anti-propaganda by the naxallite sympathisers regading the same?”
I wish to state that this is the heartfelt questions from the men/officer’s strong feeling.

Cumbing operation against Naxalites in Chikamagalur is a bad luck so Naxalites should start attacking Police in Karnataka or blast the Police Vehicle.
