Raipur, July 13 (ANI): Calling the Maoist attack on the police 'unfortunate', Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh on Monday said that it is time to make the right strategies and take decisive action against the Maoists.
"It is an unfortunate incident for all of us. These incidents only show the cowardly nature of the Maoists. Our fight with the Maoists has been going on. There have been numerous losses as well, but it is not the time for us to lose our determination. It is the time to take decisive action against the Maoists," he said.
The Congress Party has demanded that President's rule be imposed in the state, but Raman Singh reacted saying that it is not time to think on political lines, but making right strategies to deal with the Maoists.
"It is a huge loss. We will forget these sacrifices, if we do not make the right strategies to deal with the Maoists. We should not think on political lines and about resignations. It is time to think peacefully and devise an action plan," Singh added.
Ajit Jogi, former Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh, has called for the intervention of the Central Government and imposition of President's rule.
"We have come to the conclusion that it is now time to request the Central Government, the President, the Prime Minister, and Sonia Gandhi to establish peace and bring law and order in the state. The Central Government should take the reins in its hands. President's rule should be imposed," Jogi said.
Thirty police personnel, including a Superintendent of Police (SP), were killed in ambushes and landmine attacks by Maoists in three separate incidents in Chhattisgarh's Rajnandgaon District. (ANI)
