Marandi asks whether JMM-BJP support anti-Maoist operation

Last Updated: Saturday, January 16, 2010 - 22:00

Ranchi: JVM-P Chief Babulal Marandi on Saturday
asked JMM-BJP coalition whether they would support Centre`s
"Operation Green Hunt" to tame Maoist guerrillas in Jharkhand,
a day after the ultras killed seven policemen and a civilian
in Gumla.

"We would like to ask BJP and JMM, the bigger parties
of the coalition, whether they are ready to support Centre`s
proposal to launch `Operation Green Hunt` to root out
Naxalism," Marandi told a news conference here.

"Being the national party, BJP should clarify its
stand on the operations, he said.

Condemning yesterday`s landmine blast that killed
seven policemen and a civilian in Gumla, the former Chief
Minister alleged law and order in Jharkhand had plunged to a
low as coalition partners were `wrestling for creamy
portfolios`.

"Three doctors in Jamshedpur and one trader in Palamau
have been killed recently," Marandi said pointing to
increasing number of criminal activities in the state.
