'Jharkhand will co-op with Centre to combat Maoists'

Dhanbad (Jharkhand), Feb 5 (PTI) Jharkhand Chief Minister Shibu Soren has said his coalition government is committed to follow the Centre's policy on containing the Maoists.

"There is no need for a separate policy on the issue when the Centre has already formed one," Soren told reporters here yesterday.

"Our government will fully cooperate with the union government on this issue," he said.

Soren will visit Kolkata on February nine to take part in the proposed meeting of chief ministers of four Naxal-affected states with Union Home Minister P Chidambaram.

CRPF DG Vijay Raman had yesterday held a meeting with Jharkhand police chief Niaz Ahmed and other police officials regarding the issue yesterday.

The state security forces were ready to join any anti-Maoist operation in the state, sources said.
