Sri lanka was united. Each Sri Lankan wanted the government to finish off the LTTE. In India the case is different . We have prominent authors like Arundhati Roy and Mahashweta Devi openly siding with the Naxals and badmouthing the Government. Activists like Vandana Shiva are talking like they belong to some another country. They support the Maoists vis a vis the Government. Under such constraints what do you think the government can do?

It took them 28 years to annul LTTE, with the backing of its troops and international assistance. However in the case of naxals they are in the gorilla warfare and are well supported by the locals in that area of operation. As such it is almost impossible to wipe out them without inflicting heavy causalities to the local people there. We have to cut off the local assistance to the Naxals and the only feasible way is to improve the standard of living of the locals there.If you go through the history of Naxals, you will find that they have roots where ever the balance between the haves and have nots is very wide. A sincere approach with a positive mind frame is necessary along with very strict stern action against the Naxal leadership. The problem is not as easy as you think it to be.

ShriLankan LTE and Indian Naxals are two different approach.. LTE is Identity and Naxal is Economy.. Identiy cud be resolved.. but what about Economy.. Naxals are the exploited and neglected Community.. You give them their dues and Right to Survival.. it cud be resolved.. But Leased Governance are survivals on the Exploitation of these Neglected Communities.. how they wud be facilitated.. then they have to withdraw themselves from the Power..

India belongs to Everyone.. These Tribal Communities were the LIfe line of the Heritage Rulers.. they were very important in way of Paramilitary, Traditional Knowledge, and Intelligence.. They are ABSOLUTEDLY SHATTERED FOR 300 YEARS.. Now We NEED A SERIOUS THINKING TOWARDS THEM..

They almost killed every tamilians in that area including innocent people. Do you mean that kind of treatment in India? First of all it is very difficult to find out naxals in forest as they seems like tribals / locals.

LTTE was evolved out of ethnicity. Naxalism was evolved out of exploitative economics. There is an ocean of difference there. U can't compare LTTE to Naxals. U can compare LTTE w/ Kashmir separatists and w/ ULFA . The Naxals are more comparable to Viet COng. Not even the US could deal w/ the Viet Cong. A movement that draws inspiration from economic exploitation is hard to put down via force.

Sri Lanka Eliminated LTTE because of unprecidented Indian support in terms of intellegence , satellite monitering and patrolling of International waters by indian navy before this LTTE was not defeated because sri lankan politicians hobnobbed with LTTE from time to time for narrow political gains , Exampla Ransinghe Premdasa supplied Arms to LTTE just in order to move out IPKF.

Naxals are in same stage , Congress capped Selva Judam programm which was launched by KPS Gill and Raman Singh for gaining naxal support for winning elections in Andhra , Congress snatched Andhra from TDP but Chattishgarh and India as a whole suffered.
Similarly UPA1 facilitated Maoists to gain power in Nepal and Sitaram Yechuri personally oversaw the ceremony in Kathmandu. After Elections it became clear that Maoists were really not that popular as they were made out to be. But this gave an impetus to Maoism in India and today you see Maoists are creating Red Corridore to grab power in India
