Written by: Staff

Raipur, Jan 22: Home Minister P Chidambaram said that the anti-Maoist operations will continue in areas dominated by Naxalites for quite some years.

Home Minister's statement comes after state governments had agreed to coordinate actions against Maoist guerrillas.

He said, "The (anti-Maoist) operations will continue. Our goal is not to kill anyone but to reassert the civil administration to be followed immediately by development in areas dominated by Naxalites for quite some years."

Chidambaram chaired a two-hour meeting with Chief Ministers Raman Singh of Chhattisgarh and Navin Patnaik of Orissa, Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil and officials of paramilitary forces.

"The meeting was successful. We identified progress we made... We identified steps to be taken," he said.

He said that the central government was offering troops and technology to states to take on the outlawed Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist).
