Union Home Minister Amit Shah, in his effort to bring an end to Left-Wing extremism in states affected by Maoist insurgencies asked the chief ministers of these states to adopt necessary steps so that the plight can be completely addressed in a year’s time. Although the fight is “reaching its end,” said Shah, it “needs to be accelerated and made decisive.”

The Home Minister was addressing the heads of state of Odisha, Telangana, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Jharkhand whom he told that they should come up with a collective strategy to cut off the flow of funds towards Maoist insurgent groups.

Shah also said that fatalities connected with violence inflicted by Left Wing Extremist groups has seen a considerable fall during the last year when the numbers were around 200. He said, this needs to be further clinched and all the CMs need to take necessary steps in the coming year so that a permanent solution can be reached.

Also present in the meeting were union ministers AshwiniVaishnaw, Giriraj Singh, ArjunMunda and NityanandaRai, apart from chief ministers Naveen Patnaik (Odisha), K ChandrashekarRao (Telangana), Nitish Kumar (Bihar), Shivraj Singh Chouhan (Madhya Pradesh), Uddhav Thackeray (Maharashtra) and Hemant Soren (Jharkhand).

Those absent included West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee, Chhattisgarh chief minister BhupeshBaghel, Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and Kerala chief minister PinarayiVijayan. The concerned states however, were represented by either a minister or senior party officials.

Shah stressed on “neutralizing the source of income” of these Maoist groups and suggested that they can easily achieve this objective by creating pressure, accelerating speed and maintaining better coordination between the Centre and the states.

He also suggested there should reviews conducted on the matter at regular intervals at the chief ministerial, chief secretary level and the DGP level which should help get a quicker resolution.

Shah said, “without eliminating Left Wing Extremism completely, neither will we be able to spread democracy to the bottom (layer) nor will we be able to develop the underdeveloped areas. So, instead of being satisfied with what we have achieved so far, we need to increase the speed to cover what is left.”
