End of Naxalism has started in Chhattisgarh: Raman Singh February 27, 2007

Raipur, Feb 27: Naxalism is a threat to the nation but steps to wipe it out have started in Chhattisgarh, Chief Minister Raman Singh told the assembly.

Replying to a discussion on thanks to the Governor for his address to the house on February 19, Singh said Naxalites are a threat to the democracy and the country.

“One day the Naxalism will be finished from the country and the process has already been started in Chhattisgarh in the form of Salwa Judum (an anti-Naxal people’s campaign),” he said adding “we have the will power and determination to end Naxalism from the state.”

Referring to the allegation of lack of development in the state under his rule, Singh said compared to the first three-year tenure of the erstwhile Congress regime, he has fared better.

“Several schools and hospitals were opened and more roads were constructed in last three years,” he said.

Earlier, Leader of Opposition Mahendra Karma and other Congress members said execution of the proposed projects was needed and mere allocation of funds would not bring development to the state.

Karma also alleged that the Chief Minister’s lack of expertise in administration was allowing Shiv Sena and Bajrang Dal activists to “attack” minority community members and the government should take steps to check it.
