The current NDA government has handled the Naxal problem in a remarkable manner which has curbed the activities of left-wing terrorists to a great extent. The government’s resolve coupled with aggressive anti-terror operations against the armed outfits, massive infrastructure development has caused a steady decline in the Naxal menace. One of the key achievements of this collective effort of the government and the security forces has been the loss of support and sympathy that these Maoists used to get from the masses.

Earlier this month, a large number of Maoists had surrendered before the security agencies in Chhattisgarh. In the month of September, two Naxal leaders carrying higher rewards on them had surrendered before the senior police officials in Jharkhand and Chattisgarh.
