Kolkata: Expressing confidence of reclaiming
areas dominated by Maoists, Union Home minister P Chidambaram
on Tuesday said inter-state operations against them had been
launched in West Bengal and Jharkhand.
"The meeting discussed inter-state operations between West
Bengal and Jharkhand besides West Bengal and Orissa and some
decisions have been taken. These decisions will be
implemented," he told a press conference after the key meeting
with chief ministers, deputy chief ministers and senior

what was happening all over the country.
Admitting that there were some inadequacies here and
there, he said, "We discussed both strength and weaknesses."
