Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, in a letter to Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, has pointed out the state's failure to control Maoist activities. In the letter he said the situation in the state had become alarming and there is complete breakdown in coordination between the state police and the Central forces.
He advised Kumar to examine successful counter-insurgency models of other states and adopt them in Bihar.
"We have noticed a complete breakdown in coordination between the state police and the Central forces as well as with neighbouring states like Jharkhand," Shinde wrote.
Raising serious concern over lack of anti-Naxal operations in Bihar, Shinde said the CPI(Maoist) have looted 38 sophisticated weapons and ammunition from the Bihar Police this year, the highest in the country.
"There is a worry that Maoists have identified Bihar Police for snatching weapons and ammunition since the state police personnel appear to be poorly trained in tactics. The state has also witnessed the killing of 27 security personnel this year," he said.
Requesting to revisit the Bihar government's strategy's of fighting the Naxals, the Home Minister told the Bihar Chief Minister that situation in the state has become alarming and if it is not addressed immediately, there is a possibility that the Left Wing Extremism (LWE) situation may go completely out of control in the near future.
