Pune: Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil
on Saturday advised parents in big cities to keep a watch on their
children to ensure they do not get drifted towards Naxalism.

"As Naxalism is percolating in many big cities, parents
should keep a watch on their children," he said here.

Left-wing extremism was a challenge before the
government, he said, adding every section of the society
should help the state administration in effectively tackling
the menace.

Patil was speaking at a function, where he released the
book, `Challenges of Naxalism`, written by Devendra Gavande.
