Tribal girls in Kondagaon of Chattisgarh choose hockey sticks over radicalisation by Left-wing terrorism

In a bid to eradicate the radicalization of the young people, who are often the targets of the Left-wing terror groups, the governments and security forces with effective state-based interventions, are keen to utilize the energy of the youngsters into a positive outcome.

According to reports, the tribal girls in Kondagoan, Chhattisgarh, amidst of all the violence, have picked up hockey sticks to fight the left-wing terror in the state. The group of girls from a small village of Kondagaon district has been training very hard along with the Indo-Tibetian Border Police (ITBP) and have secured the second position in a recently concluded tournament held in the district.

The ITBP has been very pro-active in channelizing the positive energy of the youths of the Naxal affected region. They are keen to bring a positive change in the state by using sports as an avenue for the development of the region. Apart from building a girls hockey team, ITBP has also started to train girls, to build the first girls football team in the Bastar region of Chattisgarh.

The Commandant of the 41st Battalion of the ITBP, who trained the village girls said, “We have added Beti Khelao to Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao. We selected hockey as it is our national game. We started giving hockey training to 30 girls in a school adjacent to our camp. The girls are taking part in many tournaments.”

Kondagaon district of Chattisgarh is known to be one of the worst affected regions by Left-wing terrorism in the country. But things seem to be changing on the ground as the present government has been following a multi-pronged approach to not only eliminate the red-terror, but also develop these poorest regions of the country.

The present NDA government has been fighting the menace of the ‘Left-wing-terror’ successfully by using the “carrot and stick” policy to eradicate the terror in the region.

The security forces have carried out extensive and targeted operations in the strongholds of the Naxals and have succeeded in eliminating the terrorists. The security forces, along with state government have also devised rehabilitation initiatives so that the Naxals can give up guns and join the mainstream without any violence. This approach is considered to be one of the successful initiatives of the government, as many Naxals have come out of the camps and is part of the social life now.

The government has also backed up this with the massive financial outlay for developing the basic infrastructure like roads, railways, schools, electricity in the region. Access to technology and mobile network has brought major changes in the region, as it has brought success in providing hhealth careand educational benefits and has  helped the locals to take advantage of government schemes to enhance their livelihood opportunities.

Recently, few Naxals had surrendered before the security forces, after security forces gunned down eight down eight Naxals in forests of Timinar and Pusnar during Anti-Naxal operation, along Dantewada-Bijapur border. The surrendered naxalites talking to the media said that they face a lot of problems in the Naxal camps. The administration, through various policies and initiatives of the government, has managed to rehabilitate many former Naxals who surrender.

The Left wing terror is on the verge of extinction in the country has been trying extremely hard to survive with often using terror to keep their grip on the tribal areas. But it seems, the tribal people who were earlier manipulated to be sympathetic to their cause are now deserting them for better lives.
