Bangalore: Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily
Sunday underlined the vital role of IAS officers in helping
curb Naxalism by ensuring implementation of central schemes
and equitable development.
IAS officers have a role to play in ensuring that the
schemes targeted at the underprivileged are implemented at the
grassroot level, Moily said.
"But there have been shortcomings in this regard", he
Moily was speaking at a function organised to felicitate
those selected for IAS and Karnataka Administrative Service
(KAS) from a city institution.
The minister said it would require better commitment from
IAS officers to defuse the Naxal activity by ensuring
equitable development of all areas.
Implementation of such schemes would help in bringing
down Naxalism, he said.
