Coming down hard on Naxals, especially in urban areas has been one of the major achievements of the present government. The Narendra Modi government has taken extensive and targeted action against Naxals and combined with wide-spread socio-economic development there has been massive desertion of Naxals, who are now joining the mainstream for better livelihood opportunities.

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister also discussed the security scenario in the newly created Union Territory of Jammu-Kashmir and asked the CRPF to undertake civic action programmes besides organising sports and tours for locals and youngsters.
