Digvijay questions Chidambaram's Naxal strategy

NDTV Correspondent, Wednesday April 14, 2010, New Delhi

Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh questioned Home Minister P Chidambaram's strategy agains the Naxals, in a leading newspaper on Wednesday.

Digivijay wrote: "His strategy does not take into consideration the people living in the affected area who ultimately matter. He is treating it purely as a law and order problem. When I raised these issues with him, he said that it was not his responsibility. I strongly believe in the collective responsibility of the cabinet, and as Home Minister, it is his responsibility to take a holistic view of the issue'

He added: "While Chidambaram is extremely intelligent, articulate, committed and a sincere politician - he is also extremely rigid once he makes up his mind. I have been a victim of his intellectual arrogance many times, but we still are good friends."

Digvijay's article follows a letter issued by the cabinet secretary asking leaders not to speak on the Naxal issue, just a week after 76 CRPF jawans died in the Dantewada massacre.
