Lucknow: A top CRPF officer on Thursday said Naxalism was gradually losing ground in the country due to proper action and the force was capable of facing any challenge posed by them.
"They (Naxals) are on the decline mainly because of proper actions taken against them," CRPF DG Dilip Trivedi told reporters here, adding, "we are capable of facing any challenge from them."
When asked whether there was any political pressure on him in the state, Trivedi said he had been posted in UP since 2007 and had never felt any pressure.
Replying to a question on any input from the CRPF in the Governor`s report on law and order situation in the state, Trivedi said, "No input has been given by the CRPF to anybody."
He praised the CRPF`s role in the Muzaffarnagar violence saying that it had acted promptly and was capable to repeat it if needed in future.
