New Delhi: Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Monday ruled out use of army or air force against Maoists in the country.

Chidambaram said that there is no plan to use Army or Air Force against naxals.

He further said that might use Special Forces and plane for surveillances in the naxal-hit areas.

It is noteworthy here that demand of use of Army to combat naxal menace in the country has been intensified after bloodiest attack on CRPF troops at Dantewada forest, in which 76 jawans were killed in the naxal ambush.
