State has contained naxal activities, says Acharya
Police tackling the problem in their own way: Minister
Udupi: Home Minister V.S. Acharya said on Sunday that the police had contained naxalite activities in the State.
Speaking to presspersons here, Dr. Acharya said that the State police were tackling the naxalite problem in their own way. “We have been able to contain it. It is now on a lesser scale,” he said. Dr. Acharya said that the operation at Mairadijaddu (in Udupi district resulting in killing of a suspected naxalite) had shown that the police strategy was paying. Karnataka was no longer in the list of naxalite-infested States. Even Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram had said that naxalite activities had come down in Karnataka, he said.
