On Naxals, Red Corridor and Operation Green Hunt - || Satyameva Jayate ||

  • tags: no_tag

      • To conclude, here is a short list of the measures that were proposed by students at the discussion:

        • Massive focus on developing the region especially in terms of providing jobs
        • Involving the local community in the process - do the adivasis need a road to Ranchi or a factory that can employ them?
        • Ensuring speedy justice
        • Elimination of corruption - making an example of corrupt officers
        • Direct cash transfers to the adivasis
        • Property rights and land reforms

        There was general agreement that “cash compensation” (peace money) will not work neither will deployment of the army.
