Centre not for curbing Maoists by harsh measures: Jaiswal

The government does not believe in taking harsh measures against Maoists in its bid to solve the Naxal menace in a haste, Union Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal today said.



Patna: The government does not believe
in taking harsh measures against Maoists in its bid to solve
the Naxal menace in a haste, Union Minister Sriprakash Jaiswal
today said.

"The Centre can solve the Maoist problem within a
fortnight, but by taking harsh measure it does not want to
turn the problem into terrorism," the Union Minister of State
for Coal told reporters here.

He said a solution to the problem could be reached
through cooperation with the state and central governments, he
said.

Noting that the rebels spread their influence due to
non-development, he said leaders of different political
parties were also to be blamed for the present situation.

The Centre could only provide central forces, modern
weapons, funds for improving the conditions of police stations
and officers but deployment of forces and safety of firearms
was the prerogative of the state government, he said.
