If the battle against the Maoists is to be won, States will have to show the vision and resolve to create infrastructure of the kind Andhra Pradesh has built. The task, sadly, will need years of work. As this newspaper has pointed out on several occasions, India just does not have the numbers of police personnel needed to ensure law and order in normal circumstances, let alone protracted insurgencies. The United Nations recommend that 222 police officers be available for every 100,000 population; India has an average of just 125. In Bihar, the ratio is as low as 60 for every 100,000. Some of the States worst affected by Maoist violence also have an extremely poor presence of police, given their geographical area. Where New Delhi has 3,953 police officers in every 100 square km of its territory, Chhattisgarh has 22, Jharkhand 50, and Bihar 59. Police stations the basic unit on which any security response depends are decrepit, and often lack modern communication systems. In addition, t ...more

Central government cannot escape its responsibility to handle the problems related to naxalism and save he country from the danger posed by naxalite groups, by anti national forces acting from inside the country. They cannot put blame squarely on state governments saying that naxalism is law and order problem and hence a subject of state government. Only fool can accept the theory of law and order problem cited by Ministers in Central Government or leaders of Congress Party or any other person like Lalu Yadav even after experiencing large scale killing of CRPF and common men in last one month only , that too on one place only and that in Dantewara district in Chattisgarh state. This is happening despite the fact that Chief Minister of Chattishgarh is making all efforts to handle naxalism and extending all support to Central government wholeheartedly. In other states like Bihar, West Bengal, Orissa, Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand mass killing by naxalites has become common feature and he ...more

Yes. this will be useful to put greater confidence in the battered national psyche.

Dantewada district of Chhattisgarh, Naxalites today killed at least 35 people 24 civilians and 11 Special Police Officers (SPOs) and injured several others when they triggered a powerful landmine blast to blow up a private bus.

It is for the first time that the Naxalites have targeted a passenger bus in which civilians were also travelling. The rebels have been repeatedly warning bus operators and private jeep owners not to allow security forces to board their vehicles. In the past, rebels had set ablaze the vehicles after forcing the civilians to get off.

Dantewada is not the second episode. There are so many in last six years of UPA raz, NAXALS from AP enter in Chattisgarh border jungles, attack and run back to AP juridction. Central Home Minister and Congress Leadership don't want AP to be involved and so they can't/ don't check naxal menance.
AP is ruled by Congress so there is a immoral issue of Principled governance.
