Naxal Affected Regions of Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand

Shri Jitendra Singh, Minister of State of Home Affairs in a written reply to a question by Sh. Om Prakash Mathur in Rajya Sabha today informed that at present, 105 companies of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), 36 companies of Border Security Force (BSF), 15 companies of Indo-Tibetan Border Force
(ITBP) and 50 Teams of Commando Battalion for Resolute Action (CoBRA) in Chhattisgarh and 96 companies of CRPF and 36 Teams of CoBRA in Jharkhand have been deployed for anti-naxal operations.
‘Police’ and ‘Public Order’ being State subjects, action with respect to maintenance of law and order lies primarily in the domain of the State Governments concerned. 
The Central Government has a holistic approach towards combating Left Wing Extremism (LWE) wherein it supplements the efforts of the State Governments over a wide range of issues including deployment of CAPFs, assistance in implementation of development schemes, improving governance and capacity building by the States in various areas. It is the belief of the Government of India that a combination of calibrated police action, focused development efforts and improvement in governance will yield the desired results against LWE, the Minister said.
