Union panchayat and rural development minister Jairam Ramesh said naxalism was strong wherever Congress has become weak. He pointed out that naxal-hit Jharkhand has not seen Congress rule in the past 13 years, Chhattisgarh has not seen Congress rule for a decade and in Orissa Congress has been out of power for 12 years.

He said wherever there is a Congress government, the naxals have not been able to spread their influence. However, he said that in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh Naxalism was not becoming strong as Congress and its organisation is stronger in the state.

He was speaking at a public meeting organized near Indore to mark the launch of ‘parivartan yatra’ on Wednesday.
