Emphasising the need for a joint effort by the union government and affected states to tackle Naxalism effectively, Gujarat Education minister Ramanlal Vora today said there should not be any politics in anti-Maoist operations.

"Be it the Naxal menace or terrorism, the affected states and the union governments should sincerely undertake joint initiative to crush it," the minister said while condemning the CPI (Maoist) attack on CRPF jawans in Dantewada district.

Vora, who was heading a 14-member delegation of ministers, MLAs and MPs from Gujarat, urged all sides to address the issue above the party line.

The minister was here to invite Gujarati community to take part in the forthcoming golden jubilee celebrations of the state from April 28 to May one.
