In the aftermath of the third Maoist attack on security personnel in Dantewada in little over a month, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh will arrive here tonight on a two day visit and is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh tomorrow.
According to state government sources, Singh is scheduled to arrive late tonight and would meet the Prime Minister and deputy chairman of Planning Commission Montek Singh Ahluwalia on Wednesday.
While Singh's meeting with Ahluwalia is scheduled for finalising the state's annual plan for 2010-11, sources said his meeting with the PM was fixed after yesterday's brazen Maoist attack in Dantewada where a bus carrying civilians as well as a group of special police officers was blown up by them, killing 35 persons.
The Chief Minister is likely to meet Home Minister P Chidambaram also during his visit, the sources said.
In a series of deadly attacks this year, Maoists massacred 76 security personnel on April 6 in Dantewada, blew up a bulletproof vehicle on May 8 killing eight CRPF men and yesterday attacked a bus carrying civilians and security men, claiming 35 lives.
