Maoists should come forward for talks if they want problem of tribals in West Midnapore district to be solved, Justice (retd) Rajinder Sachar said today.

"The government has given an offer of talks and Maoists should accept it. I believe everything can be resolved through talks," Sachar said on the sidelines of a seminar on the centenary celebrations of Rammanohar Lohia in Kolkata today.

Asked whether there were human rights violations after anti-Maoist operations by joint forces began in the district, he said, "there has been violation of human rights. It is wrong and it has been done by both sides."

Questioned whether, after his report on minorities, the West Bengal government has taken any corrective measure, Sachar said "This is not my job. I am neither the implementing machine nor the supervising authority. My job is to give the report and I have done so.

"Now it is the duty of the government and the authorities to decide what should be done."
