Amit Shah's big meeting today on leftist extremism, focus will be on the development of these states

Home Minister Amit Shah is going to hold a big meeting today with a plan to end leftist extremism. More or less ten states of the country are affected by leftist extremism. The Home Minister is trying to eradicate them from their roots by taking forward the development work in those states and strengthening the infrastructure.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah will chair a review meeting on Left Wing Extremism at Vigyan Bhawan in Delhi today. In this meeting starting at 11 am today, the Chief Ministers, Home Ministers or their representatives of the states affected by leftist extremism, Bihar, Odisha, Maharashtra, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Kerala will participate. The Union Home Secretary, top officers of the Central Armed Police Forces, senior officials of the Central and State Governments will also attend this meeting.

The main objective of this meeting of the Home Ministry to be held at a fixed interval is to completely eliminate extremism by creating development and infrastructure in the leftist extremism affected states. The Home Ministry has been working on a 'National Policy and Action Plan' since 2015 to deal with the threat of left-wing extremism. Under this, it has been said that there will be zero tolerance towards violence. Along with this, there is a big emphasis on developmental activities so that the benefits of development reach the poor and vulnerable people in the affected areas.

Centre's plan to deal with leftist extremism

Left-wing extremism has been a major challenge for many decades. Although this is a matter of states, the central government has decided to come together and deal with it jointly. In this struggle, the Home Ministry had launched a National Policy Action Plan in the year 2015. Since then the situation is being strictly monitored. Emphasis is being laid on development work. Under this policy, the Home Ministry is helping the states by deploying CAPF battalions, providing facilities like helicopters and UAVs and India Reserve Battalion (IRB) and Special India Reserve Battalion (SIRB).

This is how states get help in dealing with leftist extremism

The central government is providing more help to the states in dealing with leftist extremism. Such as modernizing the state police, giving special training to the police force, providing funds for security related expenses and infrastructure. Many important initiatives include approving 17,600 km of road construction. The focus is on increasing connectivity in remote areas in the affected states. Banks, ATMs and other necessary facilities are being provided.
