Orissa is better place than neighbouring states: Naveen

Posted by Indian Vanguard on June 5, 2007

Bhubaneswar, Jun 5: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik today claimed the extremist violence in Orissa was much less compared to other neighbouring states.

Replying to a motion moved by the Opposition on the law and order situation in the state, Mr Patnaik said there has been a substantial improvement in the overall situation.

The extremist violence was much less compared to states like Chhatishgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar and Andhra Pradesh, Mr Patnaik said.

He said while only 22 Naxalite related incidents were reported during the year in Orissa, 169 cases were registered in Chhatisgarh followed by 118 in Jharkhand, 40 in Bihar and 38 in Andhra Pradesh.

The Chief Minister said the security forces have arrested 35 Naxal activists during the year and recovered 15 arms and 21 improvised explosive devices. This apart the security forces, Mr Patnaik said have busted two arms manufacturing units of CPI(ML) during January next. He, however, said the government was not complacent about the situation and was continuing all efforts in maintaining law and order situation in the state.
