New Delhi: The Home Ministry has convened a meeting of top police and civil officials of Maoist-affected states on Tuesday to review anti-Naxal operations and improve the efficacy of the strategies.
Chief Secretaries and Directors General of Police of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Orissa, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh will take part in the meeting during which in-depth deliberations will be held on the security situation in the 'Red Corridor' and development initiatives.
Sources said the meeting would deliberate on the issue of coordination among state police and central police forces and decide on a strategy to tackle Naxals who are known to flee from one state to another after committing a crime.
The meeting will also review the development programmes being carried out in Naxal-hit districts and ways to speed them up to reach the maximum number of people.
Among the key issues that would come up for discussion are mobile telephone towers in Maoist-affected areas where the rebels often target and destroy the communication network and improvement of road connectivity. Naxal violence has been reported in areas falling under 270 police stations in 64 districts in these states.
