Maoists groups issue threats to Chidambaram

New Delhi, Feb 2 (PTI) Central security agencies have been informed about a threat issued by Left wing extremists to Union Home Minister P Chidambaram, who is reluctant to take personal security.

Banned CPI (Maoists) have been circulating pamphlets threatening to carry out attacks against Chidambaram if he did not stop operations against Naxals in various parts of the country, sources in the state government said.

Chidambaram, who himself turned down the recommendations of the agencies for a security cover for himself, has been tough on tackling the Maoist problem across the country.

He has ensured adeuqate security forces drawn from paramilitary forces like the CRPF, BSF, SSB and ITBP and worked out a plan for effective coordination with the state police.

Chidambaram has taken the state governments on board to ensure a coordinated approach against naxal groups
