Trust-deficit among people of Naxal-hit areas: PC

Home Minister P Chidambaram on Wednesday said there was a "trust deficit" among people of Naxal-hit areas and called on industries to join hands in developing such areas rather than being content with profit and loss accounts.



New Delhi: Union Home Minister P
Chidambaram on Wednesday said there was a "trust deficit" among
people of Naxal-hit areas and called on industries to join
hands in developing such areas rather than being content with
profit and loss accounts.

He said certain people in Maoists affected areas rely
more on "structures of powers which oppose the country" and
have less faith in the good intentions of the government
or Indian business houses.

"In Naxal affected states, the problem is lack of
effective government. Why there is lack of effective
government is because institutions of government are not
present in these areas ... People have virtually distanced the
government.

"There is a huge trust deficit between elected
government and people of these areas. They tend to rely upon
structures of power which oppose the country," Chidambaram
said speaking at the Confederation of Indian Industries (CII)
annual meet.

He said certain people in Naxal-hit areas are opposing
the good intentions of the government or the industry even
when the situation in which the people live is really bad.

"It is a wake up call for us. We must ask why there is
a trust deficit among the people of India, government of
India, government of states. Why is there so much distrust of
people who want to bring development and industry?" he said.
