Raising questions on Centre's anti-Maoist policies, BJP on Thursday said it would support the government's stand which would end Left-wing extremism.
"There should be clarity in policies on Maoist issues. Different policies are pursued for different states when Maoists have declared war against the democratic system," BJP national general secretary M Venkaiah Naidu told reporters here.
Stating that central ministers and UPA leaders differ on their approach to anti-Maoist policies, Naidu said: "clarity and sincerity should be there as Maoists had started killing innocent people."
While Maoists kill innocent people by targeting trains, Centre did nothing other than making statements, he said.
Strongly criticising Union Home minister P Chidambaram, Naidu said: "Chidambaram makes big talks, but not big actions."
Chidambaram's bold statements would not help to fight the red rebels, he said adding that the union home minister's versions were contradicted by senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh.
Terming Maoist problem as basically a "political" issue, Naidu said it was not a law and order problem as considered by UPA government.
