On Monday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah met the soldiers at the CRPF camp in Bijapur, Chhattisgarh. Addressing the soldiers, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that I pay tribute to the soldiers killed in the Naxalite attack on behalf of the Prime Minister, on my behalf, and on behalf of the people of the country. The country cannot forget their sacrifice. The country has compassion towards their families. You have definitely lost some of your companions. The sacrifice of your companions will not go in vain.
The purpose for which they have sacrificed will surely serve that purpose and victory will be ours. This is a fight and we have to take this fight to the end. Those who want to come with weapons are welcome. But if we have a weapon in our hands, then we also have no way. Will take immediate action to rectify deficiencies. The Home Minister also had a meal with the CRPF jawans. The Union Home Minister said that the government will take the fight against Naxalism to a decisive turn. Now that the force has entered the area of Naxalites, the campaign will be more intense. Home Minister Shah arrived in Tarrem in Bijapur district on Monday to pay tribute to the martyred jawans. Home Minister Shah and Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel held a meeting with officials here on the Naxal problem after paying tribute to the martyred soldiers. After this, he spoke to the injured CRPF jawans and addressed them.
Victory sure against Naxalism
Shah said that such attacks would not stop the fight against Naxalism. Will take this fight to the end. Victory against Naxalism is certain. The central and state governments are continuously moving forward in Naxal-affected areas. Camps are constantly being opened in the interiors of his influence, which has shocked him. It is necessary to remove the inequality of development in tribal areas. Along with this, fight Naxalism. The central and state governments are fighting step by step on both these fronts. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has placed priority on both internal security and development issues. Shah said that the place where the encounter took place is the core area of the Naxalites. This shows that we have reached far ahead in their area.
Shah shouted in the den of Naxalites
Home Minister Amit Shah reached the CRPF camp of Dhur Naxal-affected Basaguda in Bijapur district and met the jawans. Basaguda is in the core area of the Naxalites. A major incident took place in this area on Saturday. Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel also reached Bijapur with him.
We are growing in the stronghold of Naxalites, this is the reason for their fury: Bhupesh
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said that this incident shook the entire country. Our soldiers have also responded bravely. It was not an encounter, but a war. For the first time, our soldiers have brought the bodies and weapons of Naxalites from their area. Last year, it was also revealed in the Minapa encounter that 26 Naxalites have also been killed. In Tarrem also, the soldiers saw that he had brought four tractors to carry the body of his companions. We are growing in their stronghold, this is the reason for their disillusionment.
Instructions to police and central force to remain on high alert
In view of the visit of Union Home Minister Amit Shah after the Naxalite encounter in Bijapur, police and central forces have been instructed to remain on high alert in all the Naxal-affected districts of the state along with Bastar division. The neighboring states of Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Odisha and Telangana Police have also been alerted. The force has increased its vigil on the border with these states. According to police officials, the Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB) has issued this alert based on intelligence input and prior experience. According to sources, the Police Headquarters (PHQ) has also instructed the Capital Police to take special vigilance during the Union Home Minister's stay in Chhattisgarh.
Naxalites live in crime during VIP stay
According to police officials, the Naxals try to carry out another incident soon after the success of a major incident. At the same time, during the migration of big leaders to Bastar, Naxalites often stay in the backdrop of the incident. Naxalites try to make their presence known through the Naxalite incident whenever they visit the Bastar, from the Chief Minister to the Prime Minister and the President. For this reason, this alert has been issued.
