Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to hold wider political and security consultations for resolute action to combat the Naxalites.
Jaitley said, “The BJP is extremely concerned as the magnitude of Naxal operations has expanded and is entering territories beyond those of conventional Maoist activity.”
“The way Home Minister P Chidambaram speaks on the issue with so much generality, shows the government has run out of ideas (to deal with the menace), “ he said.
“Nor is it right just to say that the problem exists because of the problems of the poor have not been met... Killing cannot be fought with Satyagraha.”
