‘SC order on Salwa Judum will impact anti-Naxal operations’
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, July 27: The Supreme Court judgement on disbanding of Salwa Judum will impact on the anti-Naxal operations, says the Centre which is planning to call a meeting of Chief Ministers of Orissa and Jharkhand after Chhattisgarh's action on a new law on the issue.
Home Minister P Chidambaram also says that there are reports that CPI (Maoist) and the PCPA may be re-grouping in the Jangalmahal area of West Bengal which has been asked to be on alert.
"Well, I think it will," he told PTI when he was asked whether the recent Supreme Court judgement on disbanding and disarming tribals deployed as Special Police Officers (SPOs) will affect the anti-Naxal operations.
"At least Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh (Raman Singh) strongly feels that this judgement will impact anti-Naxal operations," Chidambaram said.
