Crucial meet on Maoist violence today

Posted by Indian Vanguard on April 26, 2007

New Delhi • During its crucial coordination committee meeting on Maoist violence today, the union home ministry will try to impress upon the states hit by left-wing extremism the need to achieve proper coordination among their police forces and security personnel to wipe out the four-decade-old menace.

The various states hit by Maoist violence continue to entertain reservations on the police force of a neighbouring state stepping on to their territory without prior information while chasing Naxal guerrillas crossing state boundaries. This reservation has been hampering the establishment of proper coordination between various states’ police and security personnel.

The centre’s coordination committee meet to explore ways to resolve this problem would be chaired by Union Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta and attended by chief secretaries and director generals of police of all the Naxal-hit states, besides chiefs of paramilitary forces deployed in various states to fight Maoist violence.

Senior officials from various central ministries and departments will also be participating in the meeting to take a holistic view of the Maoist violence, which the government does not consider a mere law and order problem but a fallout of the lack of socio-economic development in various regions.

Today’s meet comes close on the heels of two other important meetings on the issue held in Hyderabad and Patna respectively on April 13 and 16. At the ministry’s Task Force meeting in Hyderabad on Moaist violence, the agenda included evolving joint strategies to tackle the Maoists, modernising intelligence gathering and improving inter-state coordination to target Maoist leaders and cadres.

State Chief Secretaries meet over internal security

State Chief Secretaries meet over internal security

New Delhi, April 20: Internal security, with special focus on Naxal violence, will be top on the agenda of a meeting of state Chief Secretaries convened here on Friday by Cabinet Secretary B K Chaturvedi.

With Naxalism posing the biggest threat to internal security, the high-level meeting is likely to discuss ways to deal with emerging situation in the backdrop of some recent incidents.

Intelligence inputs have hinted at the vulnerability of the stock market, sea routes and the uninhabited islands which could be used as a safe haven by terrorists.

Sources in the MHA said the meeting would be attended by Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta, Special Secretary (Internal Security) M L Kumawat and other senior officials dealing with internal security and Naxal management.

Though billed as an administrative reform event, the meeting is expected to be much more than those held annually to take stock of the internal security situation.

This is because of new threats from sea routes, terror funding, terrorists` interest in stock markets, pumping of fake currency by terrorist outfits and fresh attacks by ultras.

The MHA has also convened a meeting of the coordination centre on Naxalism here on April 26 after completing its exercise of reviewing operational strategies to tackle Naxalite activities in nine states and deliberating on development aspects.

The coordination centre, comprising Chief Secretaries and Police Chiefs of nine states hit by Maoist violence, is expected to discuss changes in operating procedures of paramilitary forces and state police.
