Anti-naxal assault: P Chidambaram calls meeting

New Delhi: The culmination of the five-phase assembly election in naxal-affected Jharkhand has set the stage for the Centre to launch a calibrated effort to flush out the armed insurgents from infested states.

Home minister P Chidambaram has convened a meeting of senior police and civil officers of five affected states on Thursday to discuss the offensive.

The meeting, to be held a day after the Jharkhand assembly election results are declared on Wednesday, would be attended by chief secretaries and directors general of police of Jharkhand, Orissa, Chhattisgarh, Bihar and Maharashtra. Andhra and West Bengal have been kept out, ostensibly because of the situation there on account of the Telangana agitation and the CPI(M)-Trinamool conflict.

Home ministry sources said Chidambaram would take a general review of law and order in these states. A discussion may also be held on the preparedness to launch a clinical operation the against left-wing extremists. The operation would focus on the enclaves on borders of the affected states that are used by insurgents to slip in and out of the states after committing a crime.

Police combing operations in A.P. forced Maoists into neighbouring states. Police can use the same tactics in Chattisgarh but increase security checkpoints throughaerial reconnaisance methods to track groups of Naxalites crossing the borders.Initiating the kind of warfare directed against the Taliban in Afghanistan will just result in greater civilian casualties and world-wide outrage by human rights activists.Susan
