ANSWER
MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF HOME AFFAIRS
(SHRI KIREN RIJIJU)

 

(a) to (c): A Statement is laid on the Table of the House.

STATEMENT REFFERED TO IN REPLY TO THE RAJYA SABHA STARRED QUESTION NO.*59 FOR 09.07.2014

(a): Some over ground/underground activities of LWE groups were reported from 182 districts of 20 States/Union Territories in 2013. The State-wise/Union Territory-wise details of the districts which witnessed Maoists/Naxal activities is enclosed (Annexure-'A'). However, out of the 182 districts only 76 districts (shown as bold in the annexure) witnessed LWE violence.

(b): The State/Union Territory-wise details of the casualties of security force personnel and civilians and the number of Left Wing Extremists captured or killed in India during the last three years, is enclosed (Annexure-'B')

(c): The Central Government has a four pronged strategy to tackle LWE menace – Security Related Measures; Development Related Measures; Ensuring Rights & Entitlements of local communities and public perception Management, wherein it supplements the efforts of the State Governments.

In security related interventions, apart from directly deploying Central Armed Police Forces (CAPFs), the Government of India provides assistance for capacity building of the states through schemes like the Security Related Expenditure (SRE) Scheme, the Special Infrastructure Scheme (SIS), the Construction/Strengthening of Fortified Police Stations Scheme etc. In addition, other security related interventions include providing helicopters to States, setting up of Counter Insurgency and Anti Terrorism (CIAT) schools, assistance to raise India Reserve Battalions (IRB), modernization and up-gradation of the State Police and their Intelligence apparatus under the Scheme for Modernization of State Police Forces (MPF scheme) etc.

On the development front, the Central Government is implementing special schemes for LWE affected areas like the Additional Central Assistance (ACA) Scheme (in place of old Integrated Action Plan), the Road Requirement Plan-1 (RRP-1) etc.

To ensure Rights & Entitlements of local communities, the Central Government has enacted the Scheduled Tribes and other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act, 2006 to recognise and vest the forest rights and occupation in forest land in forest dwelling scheduled tribes and other traditional forest dwellers, who have been residing in such forests for generations, but whose rights could not be recorded. The Rules were notified on 01.01.2008 and have been further amended on 06.09.2012 to ensure better implementation. The Ministry of Tribal Affairs has also issued comprehensive guidelines on 12.07.2012 on issues relating to implementation of the Act. Special attention is given so that the implementation of this Act is effectively undertaken in the States, so that its aims and objects are fully achieved.

Under Public Perception Management, the Central Government is implementing the Media Plan to convey the Government's view to the people through the Media.

It is the belief of the Government of India that a combination of calibrated police action, focused development efforts and improvement in governance are the effective instrumentalities to combat LWE insurgency in the long-term.
