Time to crush Naxalites in Chhattisgarh

Sukma in Chhattisgarh has always been the nerve centre of Maoist activity. On Monday, more than 300 Naxalites ambushed and martyred 25 CRPF jawans on the Dornapal-Jagargonda road. This attack reminds us of the Naxalite attack on a convoy of Congress leaders on May 25, 2013 in Darbha ghati, in which many senior Congress leaders, including V C Shukla, were killed. Monday’s attack was the biggest one in recent years. Chhattisgarh chief minister Dr Raman Singh has said that the Naxalites’ ire was over the construction of a vital road that passes through dense forests in Sukma district. He has said that if the road becomes operational, the backbone of Naxalite movement in his state would be broken. On Monday too, the CRPF jawans had been sent to provide protection to road construction workers. Our brave jawans had to lay down their lives for the nation, but their martyrdom will steel the nation’s resolve to crush Naxalites in Chhattisgarh.
