Naxalism will be wiped out from India in the subsequently 3 years: Minister Rajanth Singh

  • Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday made a tall claim by saying that the menace of Left Wing Extremism, or ‘Naxalism’ as it’s widely known, will be eliminated from the country in about three years.

  • In an address to troops of the Rapid Action Force (RAF) on the occasion of their 26th anniversary celebrations in Lucknow, Singh said their action should be rapid and quick but never “reckless”.

  • He said districts affected by Naxal violence in India have come down to around 10-12 compared to 126 some time back.
  • “That day is not far, may be in a time period of 1-2 or 3 years, when the LWE will be eliminated from the country and this would happen due to your (CRPF) determination, courage and hard work and that of the state police forces,” he said. “I congratulate you for the work you have done.”
