Kolkata: The killing of top Maoist leader
Kishenji in West Midnapore district was a setback for the
ultras, but it would not solve the problem, West Bengal
Governor M K Narayanan said on Monday.

"It is a big setback to the Maoists, but killing one
leader will not solve the Maoist movement," the Governor told
reporters on the sidelines of a programme here.

Narayanan, a former national security advisor,
however, did not give any suggestion for a solution to the
Maoist problem and it was his first reaction to the killing of
Kishenji in an encounter with the joined forces at Burisole
forest on November 24.
