Home Minister Rajnath Singh urges Maoists to surrender, promises rehabilitation

Chhattisgarh will go for the second phase of Assembly polls in 72 of the 90 constituencies on November 20 to elect a new Assembly. Results will be declared on 11th December along with the other four states, Telangana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Mizoram.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday assured that the menace of Naxalism will end in next three to five years. Rajnath Singh asked Maoists to join the mainstream by surrendering under the rehabilitation policy for them.

The Minister who was in Chhattisgarh for a two-day election campaign told the reporters, “Naxalism will end in next three to five years. The surrender process is continuous and the government has decided to make the rehabilitation policy more effective.”

Singh said that Maoism is going through its last phase and it has been reduced from ninety districts to ten or eleven districts. He appealed to the Maoists to surrender and assured them of providing benefits of rehabilitation policy being pursued by the government.

The minister mocked the Congress which has not yet declared their Chief Ministerial candidate in Chhattisgarh. “Congress is moving ahead with a marriage procession without the groom,” he commented.

“The Congress, as well as all opposition political parties, have been currently facing a crisis of credibility. The Congress has lost its inherent strength which is the base of any political party. This is the reason the Congress hasn’t so far announced its Chief Ministerial candidate (in Chhattisgarh),” he said.

Singh called the manifesto of Congress a postdated cheque. He said, “the Congress recently launched its manifesto. What is the purpose of launching the manifesto when a political party has lost its faith in public and there is no credibility of its promises.”
Appreciating the work done by Raman Singh government in the state since 2003, Singh said, “Chhattisgarh’s GDP (Gross Domestic Product) has risen to more than 3.25 lakh crore from around 39,000 crore in 2003. This is not a small thing.”

He said that people’s faith has increased in the BJP, despite being in power for 15 years. “I am saying it on the basis of reading the mood of people after the first phase of Assembly elections and attending three public meetings on Wednesday. Generally, credibility of crisis arises among people against any political party or the Chief Minister who work for long time. But there is a reverse impact in Chhattisgarh. Despite working for 15 years, people’s faith has increased for Raman Singh,” the minister said.

The first phase polls have concluded on November 12. The state will go for the second phase of Assembly polls in 72 of the 90 constituencies on November 20 to elect a new Assembly. Results will be declared on 11th December along with the other four states, Telangana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Mizoram.
