IN A bid to draw strategies to tackle the growing menace of Naxalites in some parts of the State and to seek suggestions from officers posted in these areas, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has summoned officials of four Naxal-infested districts.

According to sources, the Chief Minister will interact with field officers of four districts in a meeting at Mantralaya on June 6 at 11 am. Senior officials of the Home Department and the Chief Secretary will also be present at the meeting.

Discussions would also be held on the administrative role in Naxal-infested districts. Collectors and Superintendent of Police of four districts, including Dindori, Mandla, Balaghat and Sidhi with respective Divisional Commissioners and IGs will also participate in the proposed meeting.

The State Government has made a provision of Rs 4.71 crore for tackling the Naxal menace. The fund has been earmarked under a new scheme in the current year’s budget.
