Naxals making forays into southern states
New Delhi: The Naxals are making forays into Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu under the supervision of the South West Regional Bureau of CPI(Maoist) and engaged in establishing a forest route in the area.
Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh told Rajya Sabha that the Maoists plans include creating a base on the border of Kerala and Karnataka.
"The CPI(Maoist) cadres, active in the Wayanad district of Kerala have also been known to engage in efforts aimed at establishing a forest route from Wayanad district to Mysore district of Karnataka. The CPI(Maoist) is gradually expanding their activities in these states," he said.
Singh said the Central government has sensitised the Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu governments in this regard and has also advised them to take necessary preventive and pre-emptive measures to foil the efforts of the CPI(Maoist) aimed at revival of its movement in these states.
