New Delhi, Oct 28 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday condemned the hijacking of New Delhi bound Bhubaneshwar Rajdhani Express at Bansthala in Midnapore district, and asked the Centre to be aware of new Naxal tactics.
Addressing the media here on Wednesday, party spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said: "Now it is clear that Naxals are at war with the country. The ferocity and frequency with which the Naxals are attacking pre decided targets indicates their intentions."
"The Rajdhani train being held hostage in West Bengal is the indication of new tactics adopted by Naxals," he added.
Jawadekar further elaborated that: "It is explicit that Naxals do not want development to take place in these districts as they perceive it as a handicap in their movement.'
He suggested that the government should come out with a policy where good and sincere officers are deputed in backward districts to carry out developmental works and not be subjected to as punishment transfers.
"The Chattisgarh Government has adopted a policy where an officer deputed for three years in a backward district will get a deputation of his/her choice," Javadekar said.
"Such things will boost the morale of the bureaucrats and make them work for the development of the area," he added.
Javadekar called on the Union Government to launch a nation wide coordinated police action without delay and to cut off Naxal inks with elements outside the country. By Shreeraj Gudi (ANI)
