Speaking to media, the state chief minister Raman Singh said, ''Lost in dark for so many years, Chintalnar & Jagargunda will light up again. Naxals kept villagers deprived of electricity. Soldiers sacrificed to provide basic amenities of road, communication & electricity, their sacrifice won't go in vain.''

The area has witnessed many encounters between security forces and Naxals, including April 2010 ambush that claimed lives of 75 CRPF jawans.
