New Delhi, Apr 21: Security forces in Chattisgarh have a tough time ahead with naxalites declaring war. The war cry has been declared by naxals in retaliation to an operation called Mission 2016 which aims at flushing out each and every naxal in the state.
Recently the naxlites killed seven security personnel and they termed it as a revenge action for the Mission 2016 operation.
The naxals have said that the combination of Narendra Modi at the Centre and Raman Singh in the state is exploitative in nature and hence revenge will be sought.
Intelligence Bureau inputs suggest that the naxals will continue to carry out major offensives and due to this a high alert needs to be maintained at all times.
Modi-Singh will pay
The southern sub zonal bureau of the CPI (Maoist) has warned that they would continue with their offensive. They say that the Modi and Raman Singh combine have been targeting innocents in the name of security.
The security personnel have been harassing the people of the villages and they will pay for this, the naxals have also warned.
Security forces have however rubbished these claims and say that the naxals are frustrated. They are losing ground and hence have become desperate.
Their claim that innocents are being lodges in jails is completely false, police and CrPF personnel. Those arrested are informers of the naxals, the personnel also say.
However the battle ahead for the security forces will be a tough one. The naxals are on an aggressive path in a bid to hold ground. The Mission 2016 is a tough and successful campaign and promises to flush out each and every naxalite in the state of Chattisgarh.
