At last, good news from Maoist-infested jungles

aajkibaat_frame_55452In a major operation on Sunday, C-60 commandos of Maharastra police alongwith CRPF jawans eliminated 37 Maoists in the forests of Gadchiroli bordering Chhatisgarh. They achieved this success after getting intelligence inputs about a secret meeting of Maoist commanders.

Those killed include several dreaded Maoist commanders and female Dalam commanders. At last, good news have started coming in about Maoists being eliminated in operations by security forces. Till now, over the last several years, there had been frequent reports of Maoists killing our jawans, and now, the trend seems to have reversed.

This will boost the morale of jawans fighting insurgency in the jungles, and will break the backbone of Maoists. If this trend continues, Maoists will have only two options before them: either to lay down arms and rejoin the mainstream, or to become sitting targets for our security forces.

While the bravery of Maharashtra police commandos need to be lauded, the role played by Home Minister Rajnath Singh cannot be overlooked. When 25 CRPF jawans were killed in Sukma last year, Rajnath Singh had said that he had nothing to say except that the forces will surely take action and the martyrdom of jawans will not go waste. The Home Minister did not say much since then, and today the action speaks for itself.
