Bhubaneswar: Raising questions on
Centre`s anti-Maoist policies, BJP today said it would support
the government`s stand which would end Left-wing extremism
(LWE).

"There should be clarity in policies on Maoist issues.
Different policies are pursued for different states when
Maoists have declared war against the democratic system," BJP
national general secretary M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters
here.

Stating that central ministers and UPA leaders differ
on their approach to anti-Maoist policies, Naidu said:
"clarity and sincerity should be there as Maoists had started
killing innocent people."

While Maoists kill innocent people by targeting
trains, Centre did nothing other than making statements, he
said.

Strongly criticising Union Home minister P
Chidambaram, Naidu said: "Chidambaram makes big talks, but not
big actions."

Chidambaram`s bold statements would not help to fight
the red rebels, he said adding that the union home minister`s
versions were contradicted by senior Congress leader Digvijay
Singh.

Terming Maoist problem as basically a "political"
issue, Naidu said it was not a law and order problem as
considered by UPA government.
