Naxalite penetrate Rajasthan too: Jaiswal
From our ANI Correspondent

Jaipur, May 28: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Sriprakash Jaiswal today set alarm bells ringing by stating that naxals have spread to Rajasthan’s tribal areas also.

According to intelligence reports, Udaipur and other areas of Rajasthan have Naxalite presence.

He also said that Naxal groups are holding meeting and they have started working in tribal belts, especially in Dungapur, Banswara and Udaipur districts.

The State Government has been alerted about the development.

“We have alerted the State Government to be prepared to meet the danger,” Jaiswal said.

Coming down heavily on the Bharatiya Janata Party Government of Rajasthan, he accused it for not utilising the funds provided by the Centre for police modernisation.

He also said that the Central Government is taking all steps for the deportation of illegal Bangladeshi migrants in the state.

Commenting on the Supreme Court’s order on new police act, Jaiswal said the Centre is preparing a new police act and it will be upto the State Governments to adopt it.
