Undeterred by the growing Naxalite violence, Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy on Friday said his Government was ready to continue talks with Maoists in the interests of lasting peace in the state.
Stating that extremist violence had become hindrance for development of backward regions, he said the Pradesh Congress Committee and the Government were sincere in carrying forward the dialogue process.

The Chief Minister was speaking after the unanimous re-election of the state Congress President K Kesava Rao to the post for another term.

Reddy exuded confidence that Congress would get elected for another five-year term, if the party organisation and Government worked in cohesion.

He said his Government had grounded an action plan to fulfill all the promises made to the people before the elections.

"Be it peace talks with Naxalites, free power to farmers housing, land distribution or women empowerment, we have initiated steps for fulfillment of all the promises,"
Reddy said.
