All-out offensive against naxals in March

New Delhi, Nov 25 (PTI) An all-out offensive against the Naxals, which will see over 60,000 Central security personnel in action, will commence from March next year, official sources said today.
Central security personnel drawn from the CRPF, ITBP and BSF, have already started reaching the respective area of operation and are currently undergoing area familiarisation process.

The Central security personnel, who have also been trained in new jungle warfare techniques, will be joined by the state police personnel besides commandos of the newly raised 10-battalion strong Commando Battalion for Resolute Action.

Sources said though the operation was scheduled to start by now, it got delayed primarily due to the Maharashtra and Jharkhand elections. They said some infrastructural support is yet to come up in certain areas of operation and they are waiting for everything to be ready before going in for the push.
