Jharkhand Chief Minister Shibu Soren today met Union Home Minister P Chidambaram and later said his government did not have any difference with the Centre on Naxal issue and would "jointly" fight the ultra left wing problem.

Soren, who held a half-an-hour meeting with Chidambaram here, said his government was tackling the problem of
left-wing extremism on its own.

"It was a satisfactory meeting. We are controlling Naxal activities on our own. We appreciate the work being done by
the government of India. We will work jointly," Soren told reporters after the meeting.

Soren was accompanied by his two deputy Chief Ministers Raghuvar Das and Sudesh Mahto.

"We discussed Naxal operations and development-related issues including road and water problems in the state," Mahto
said.

He said the Jharkhand government was getting support from the central government. "There is no difference between us. We have decided to work for the uplift of the state, especially in the areas of Maoists influence as they are mired in
poverty.
