Home Minister announces new anti-Naxal combat force to tackle left wing terrorism in Chattisgarh

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh annouced that Chattisgarh will get a specialized unit to tackle Maoist insurgency in the state. Rajnath Singh in the past has been very vocal about neutralizing the threat of Naxalism in this country. On Monday, Singh reiterated the same while addressing media persons after chairing a meeting on left-wing extremism (LWE). The Chief Minister of Chattisgarh, Raman Singh, was also present at the meeting held at Mantralay, Naya Raipur.

‘Black Panther’ will be a specialized anti-Naxal combat force on the lines of existing units like ‘Greyhound unit’. The Greyhounds are a special task force in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh who specializes in anti-insurgency operations against Naxals and Maoists.

He also commented on the need to cut down their economical prowess by substantially dismantling their funding network. “We have information that they have made assets to the tune of crores. It also cannot be ruled out that their money is stashed abroad,” he said.

He stated that the government is leaving no stone unturned to choke the flow of resources to the insurgents, including identifying and seizing illegally amassed property. Commenting on the deployment and effectivity of security forces in the state for the past few months, he said, “The security forces are penetrating inside Maoist affected zones in Bastar and the vacuums are being filled up. In past seven months, 16 security forces camps of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) and Chhattisgarh Armed Forces (CAF) have been set up,”

Singh also mentioned the eco-system that allows them to maintain their ranks. He claimed that many children of Maoist leaders are enrolled in ‘big schools and universities’ and the government is keeping a tab on them as well.

The incumbent government has been persistent in their quest to erase leftist-insurgency from India. This announcement comes after instances of security forces neutralizing insurgents and getting an upper hand over the extremists. This induction of Black Panther will surely have a positive impact on eradicating leftist insurgencies in Chattisgarh.
