With Maoist violence continuing unabated, Home Minister P Chidambaram has said the country will be able to counter the menace by 2013.

"We must meet the challenge to fight against Maoists and terrorism in the next two-to-three-years. We know it is a big challenge for India, but we will be able to meet the challenge in the next two-to-three years," he said at a function organised by a Business daily in Mumbai last night.

Chidambaram said India is facing another challenge -- that of preventing criminals making entry into Parliament.

"We are the largest and disciplined democracy in the world. We need honest and decent people to come to Parliament," he said.
