The growth of Maoist Groups in past 6 years of UPA rule

via HK Correspondent published on October 15, 2009

When we talk about break down of law and order situation in the country and the growth of terrorist organizations in the past 6 years of UPA rule, the focus is often confined to border skirmishes and the Islamic terrorist groups. But, during the past 6 years more than 4000 died in the country due to Maoists’ attacks. Of this about 1000 are armed forces personnel and police personnel. This year alone about 600 died until now. In 1996, the number of people died from Naxalites’ attacks were 156, but in 2008 alone 938 died from such attacks. The figure will go beyond 1000 in 2009. In states like Chattisghat, Andhra, Orissa, Jharghand and Maharashtra the Naxalite groups are swelling at alarming rate and the central government is still engaged in a wild Goose chase in dealing with the situation.

It is worth mentioning here that the UPA government is either playing down the issue of Maoist menace in the country like the way they are keeping a blind eye towards worsening border dispute with China or they are unable to deal with the situation. China has in recent times explicitly shown its muscle power with repeated encroaches at border and the claim they have laid for a portion of Arunachal Pradesh. Two days back they have warned government of India that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh should not visit Arunachal Pradesh. Still what we understand through the media is the government’s efforts to keep this issue at low ebb.
