Jairam praises Mamata role in Junglemahal

Union Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh on Thursday praised West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Congress MP Suvendu Adhikari for their "political mobilisation" to counter the Naxal menace in the Junglemahal region of the state.

"The kind of political mobilisation that happened in Junglemahal during the last two years is worth mentioning and one should not take away the credit due to her. While Mamata Banerjee has been an overarching figure behind this political mobilisation, Suvendu Adhikari has been instrumental in organising it on the ground. Both of them should be praised for playing an instrumental role in changing the ground situation in Junglemahal," Ramesh told Bengal Rural Development Minister Subrato Mukherjee.

Adhikari is facing a controversy for interference in the affairs of Haldia Dock Complex.

There has been a considerable drop in incidents of violence in Junglemahal, with the number of casualties coming down to 26 so far this year from 125 civilians in West Midnapore district in 2009.
