Unlike Digvijay, Cong doesn`t blame Raman govt for Naxal attack
New Delhi: A day after Naxals killed 35
people in a brazen attack in Chhattisgarh, Congress said it
was not finding fault with Chief Minister Raman Singh, in
contrast to party General Secretary Digvijay Singh`s targeting
"The government and the party are on the same page. We
did not pick on the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh when the
attack took place (this time and also last month). We require
all stakeholders to be on the same page," party spokesman
Manish Tewari told reporters.
His remarks came close on the heels of Digvijay`s
remarks blaming Chhattisgarh government for its anti-Naxal
policy, alleging the incidents were a result of the "utter
failure" of the state government.
Singh wanted to know where the Chhattisgarh police was
and why the operation to detect landmines on an important road
was not carried out. He contended the strategy adopted by the
Raman Singh government was not realistic.
The AICC General Secretary said more than 800 villages
and 70,000 tribals have been displaced to places away from
their villages which have been abandoned. "The whole area has
been handed over to the naxalites," he said.
