Yes, it is a good move. Such problems cannot be solved militarily. Dialogues solve many problems. I hope the Maoists will come forward for talks and there will be peace in the affected areas. Normally, it is only the innocent who always suffer in such problematic areas.

Yes, it is a good & sensible move because military operation should always be the last step to overcome such rebellion. The first & the best thing to do is to try & solve it via a dialogue. This is more of a political problem rather than a terrorist issue which would armed forces to be pressed into action!!

Generally I do not trust the politicians. However I would give a benefit of doubt to Mr. P Chidambaram that his olive branch of offer to talk is a divisionary tactics only and there is nothing more to read here. As far as the use of Indian Armed forces to eliminate the Maoists are concerned, I agree with him provided he adopts the military strategy or equivalently efficient security strategy to fight and eliminate this very serious internal threat. If he thinks that only BSF / CRPF / State Armed Police are capable of handling the Maoists menace, he is naive and living in an illusion. Maoists have undergone military training and only those who have undergone similar or better training with all the fighting equipments and intelligence tools of armed forces can win the fight. Moreover, such moves to eliminate the Maoists must be quick or surgical and any prolonged fight would drive India into untold internal chaos similar to the one we have been witnessing in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Naxalite violence constitutes an asymmetric war that demands unconventional wisdom and responses. employing traditional perspectives and using the armed forces is not the solution.The realisation is dawning on the world's most powerful armies that compared to conventional warfare, fighting insurgencies is a different cup of tea. The US and its allies have not only burnt their finges in Iraq and Afghanistan, but relised the limits of their power. Israel despite its repeated failure to subjugate the Palestinian people, refuses to learn that military approaches will not break the struggle for freedom and justice and bring about peace. purely military strategies fail in the very different context and framework of such "assymmetric wars" between the security forces and theinsurgents. This is also true of the naxalite violence engulfing some of the poorest parts of India. The assymmetries with regard to resources between opposing sides, the Govt with its massive reserves and the well-trai ...more

The day we start using our ARmy against our own volk, then we are no diff from South Vietnam. I like this move. Military itself declined to get involved, because the issue is a socio-economic 1 rather than a terrorist one where u have a group demanding a separate homeland funded by a hostile country.

No co-relation between Naxalite Maoists and People's Republic o' China. If there was, then u won't have them risking their manpower to raid police depots for ww2 era .303 rifles. They'd hav assault rifles for all their cadre. Only officer cadre have assault rifles if u carefully the pics released off them by our own govt media even. SO it is clearly an indegenous / Viet Cong like thing more so than a Taliban thing where u had ISI fund them to press 4 an independent homeland 4 their own ends as a part of India Vs Pak (another country).

Maoists r our citizens created by socio-economic issue. But the govt DID dispatch 70k CPRF lol didn't they ? CPRF assault troops and Army Jawans aren' ...more
