The war in Bastar
 Share  ·    Comment (4)   ·    print   ·  
PTI Security forces personnel carry a body from the site of Maoist ambush of May 25.

The conflict in Chhattisgarh, of which the ambush of the Congress convoy is the latest manifestation, is over whether the natural resources of Bastar belong to its people or to the state-supported corporations. A result of uneven development, it will never be resolved if the state keeps resorting to military adventurism instead of formulating policies that help the tribal people take their own decisions.By AJOY ASHIRWAD MAHAPRASHASTA in Darbha and Jagdalpur

Repeatedly govt. failed in its attempt to crush the Left wing Extremism menace. Despite experts suggesting to solve the issue in two pronged i.e L& O and development no sincere efforts made either by the state or Center. Some times they resort to blame game on each other forgetting solution. When govt knows the opposition by the tribals for mining the agency areas ,still they allow the corporate sector to go mining etc. Thus the naxals, while opposing them, are resorting huge collection from them, that money is being diverted to purchase of arms etc. Despite knowing all these , the govt neglect the tribals who suffer from seaonal deseases. No programmes on war footing to rescue them. It also failed to make use of the surrendered women naxals who came out unable to face exploitation. More technical gadgets like satelite phone, UAV air crafts should be used. The state or centre failed sofar to neutralise the rule of Naxals in Dandakaranya zone which is confluence of Chhattisgarh & 3 states

It is high time that robotic soldiers ,and armed drones should be used
to tackle violence of maoists. It will help in reducing human
casualties. Maoists are anti-development,as halting development is in
their vested interest.

development and all that sounds very fine and state is much aware of it
as well, but it has simply refused to do any of that for the past 65
years. All it has done is to more and more alienate people. So even now
when people have such naive expectations from the state, it sounds funny
to say the least.

The recent war on the largest world democratic system by the extremists in
Chattisgarh state of India on Congress leaders which caused more than 20
Lives proves that the government two pronged approach are not implemented
and deployed effectively.
I think governments should ensure the effective implementation of the
ongoing development programmes and reach the root courses of their action
and address them wisely and constructively.
