New anti-Maoist policy soon as Maoist hit states favour it
New Delhi, June 5: The government's new anti-Maoist policy is all set to become a reality soon with most Maoist-hit states favouring it, official sources said on Friday.
"The new anti-Naxal policy will be a reality soon as most of the states concerned have already given suggestions (to the home ministry) and viewpoints on it to the central government," they told IANS.
Once cleared by the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), the new policy is expected to pave the way for multi-pronged interventions in areas of security and development, the sources said.
The home ministry sources also said that the attack on armymen in Manipur, which left 18 soldiers dead, was very unfortunate and security forces were doing their best to defeat anti-India forces anywhere in the country.
