Rajnath Singh meet CMs of Naxal-hit States, holds Discussion

New Delhi, Feb 09: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday chaired a meeting of Chief Ministers of four Maoists-hit states - Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Telangana and Maharashtra - to fight against the Maoists.

With a special focus on carrying out anti-Maoist operations in the Maoist-hit states, the meeting will give stress on close coordination among state police forces and central paramilitary forces.

Joint security operations against the Maoists have failed in the past because of ill-planned coordination and overlapping of jurisdiction across the state's borders.

The central government has deployed nearly one lakh personnel of paramilitary forces in the Maoist-affected areas to deal with the rebels.
