Defence Minister A K Antony today said government viewed the violence unleashed by Maoists in some parts of the country very seriously.

"It is a serious issue and government is taking it very seriously," Antony told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

Asked about military action to combat naxals, Antony said he did not want a public debate on the strategy to end Maoist violence. "I have my own opinion on this," he said.

"Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has taken a decision that only the Home Ministry will react on the issue," Antony said.
