Trivedi, who is set to retire from service in the next two days, said "had systemic problems been addressed at the right time and not allowed to perpetuate, we would have had solutions to many problems....problems we see in Jammu and Kashmir, Nort-East or the Left Wing Extremism theatre.
     
"We have not found any solutions to these problems and there is so much politics, internal dimensions involved in these and many other such scenarios," Trivedi told reporters here. He retires on November 30.
    
He headed CRPF, the country's largest paramilitary force, for close to 15 months.
    
The DG alleged state governments, specifically, are not making "serious and concerted efforts" in choking the supply of explosives to Maoist groups and ultras which had claimed hundreds of lives of security forces engaged in anti-Naxal operations and counter-insurgency duties.
    
"Why is that the explosives have not been stopped from reaching the Naxals? There is free availability of explosives (to Naxals). Why is the state government not doing its job? The DMs and other authorities....they should be doing it," the 1978-batch Uttar Pradesh cadre IPS officer said.
    
Trivedi said "it would have been better" if illegal leakage of explosives had been stopped by state governments as central forces and agencies can do this only upto an extent.
    
"If we can stop the supply of explosives (to Maoists) the level of violence and deaths in LWE areas will go down drastically. Improvised Explosive Devices and explosvies are the biggest threat (to life) here today," he said.
