Kolkata: The Maoist problem has taken a turn for the worse in Chhattisgarh over the past year, senior Congress leader and former Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram said here on Thursday, in the wake of recent incidents of violence triggered by the ultra-left rebels.
He said the situation had improved towards the end of the rule of the United Progressive Alliance government at the Centre. “We made considerable progress in Chhattisgarh towards the end of the UPA government.
The BJP government in the state has also made progress in the first two-three years. I think in the last year, things have taken a turn for the worse.” “Either the Chhattisgarh government has lost control over the situation or the Maoists have regrouped,” he said. (IANS)
