New Delhi: Chhattisgarh Chief Minister
Raman Singh on Wednesday said Naxal-affected states should have an
"integrated action plan" to tackle the Maoist menace.
"There are different governments in different states
and all of them are dealing with the issue (Naxal) in their
own way. An integrated action plan should be made and all of
us should agree on one common point," he told reporters here.
Singh is here to attend Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh`s meeting with the seven Naxal-affected states to chalk
out a fresh strategy to curb Left-wing extremism.

Pointing out that such meetings help the states to
discuss the issue together, Singh said all Naxal-affected
states recognise the menace as the biggest security threat and
the need to combat it.

The day-long meeting of the chief ministers of Orissa,
Chhattisgarh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Bihar will
deliberate on the situation arising out of the recent Maoist
violence and chalk out a strategy to curb Left-wing extremism,
official sources said.
