Naxal war: Govindacharya supports Digvijay's criticism
New Delhi, Apr 22 (UNI) Supporting senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh's criticism over the anti-Naxal policy of Home Minister P Chidambaram, former BJP ideologue K N Govindacharya today said Naxalism is the result of failing state.
Mr Singh has recently written an article in a newspaper wherein he had questioned Mr Chidambaram's approach to the Naxal issue.
Talking to newspersons Mr Govindacharya said, ''A disciplined soldier of Congress, Mr Singh, could not have expressed his resentment in a better way. It is essential that his statement should not be viewed as a posture or part of competitive politics
but read in a wider context of Naxal movement.''
He reiterated his stance that the Home Minister did not actually have any plan of action to fight the menace. ''I totally disagree with the ways of Mr Chidambaram,'' the Rashtriya Swabhiman Aandolan's patron said.
He stated that the Centre and State Governments should understand that the Naxal movement was not merely a law and order problem and ''could not be vanquished by crass state or carpet bombing or drone aircraft''.
''The socio-economic orientation of the state is strenghtening the movement,'' he said.
Mr Govindacharya further said the RSS would take initiatives and would contribute its might for creating a favourable environment.
