Maharashtra tour for students from Naxal-hit Gadchiroli

Mumbai, Apr 16 (PTI) In the backdrop of the debate on inclusive growth being a solution to Naxalism, the state government has made plans to take students from the Naxal infested Gadchiroli district on a statewide sightseeing tour.

Replying to the debate on budgetary demands of his ministry,?Tribal Development Minister Babanrao Pachpute told the Legislative assembly the programme will be conducted throughout the year as part of the golden jubilee celebrations of the state's foundation.

He said children in the remote areas of the Naxal infested district have never seen a district place and even a city.

The government will become a tour guide for these young minds studying in standard 7th to 10th so that they understand the state better.

"There is lot of resentment about the police in the young minds. We want to remove misconceptions which they have.
