`Development, law enforcement to fight Naxals`
Pittsburg: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
on Saturday said both development and maintenance of law and order
would be his government`s twin approach to fight the Naxal
menace gripping several parts of the country.
"While a minimum enforcement of law and order is an
essential pre-requisite, there should also be efforts for
developing tribal and other under-developed areas," he told a
press conference before wrapping up his two-day visit here to
attend the G-20 summit.
The Prime Minister`s emphasis on twin-approach to
address Naxal problem came a day after Home Minister P
Chidambaram declared that the Army would not be used in fight
Chidambaram had, on a visit to Maoist-infested
Chattisgarh and Jharkand in central India yesterday, said:
"Left-wing extremism is the gravest challenge to our way of
life, our republic and our democracy."
