Centre soon to introduce plan to deal with Naxalism: Rajnath

Jaipur: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday indicated that the Centre would introduce a comprehensive plan to deal with the issues of Naxalism, terrorism and insurgency.

Singh said he has been brainstorming with sitting and retired officers and prepared a comprehensive plan, and invited suggestions from the heads of police training academies and police officers on the issue.

"There has been a drastic change in situations since independence... There are challenges of terrorism, Maoism and insurgency and to mete out these challenges... I invite your suggestions on our website," he said.

"I have been brainstorming with sitting and retired officers and a comprehensive plan is almost ready," he said while addressing the heads of police training academies of different states at a national symposium here.

The Union minister said there was a need to make perceptional change in the image of police.

"People see reflection of government, chief minister and prime minister in cops... Even a police constable regulating traffic reflects the (functioning of the) government hence the police should ensure that their behaviour is proper," he said.
