The killing of as many as 12 CRPF jawans in a Naxal landmine blast in Dhanora tehsil of Gadchiroli district indicates Indian Governments dismay over the naxal issue. The continuing inability of the government - whether at the Centre or in the States-- to counter effectively the spread of the activities of the Maoist insurgents, thus, once again demonstrated. Your opinion pls.
The incident has proved that Centres response to the home-grown guerrillas has been inadequate and unstructured, if not slow. It also shows that the government has failed to evolve a comprehensive policy to tackle the Naxal- Maoist menace in the country. No doubt, Government lacks vision and determination to overcome the crisis and cannot wash off its hands as it is responsible for indecision and casual approach in recognizing the enormity and magnitude of the challenge. The Maoists do not believe in a representative democracy. Criminals masquerading as ideological warriors are not likely to. Now is the time to move ahead and change things. Apart from developmental initiatives with sincere and sensitive policing, we need to have big political mobilisation.
