Position on Naxalism

What is the position of Lok Satta on naxalism?

Naxalism is not merely a law and order problem. Its roots lie in a social situation created by denial of opportunities to some sections of society. It will continue as long as hearts burn with a sense of injustice. But violence will never mitigate the problems or better the lives of the masses. We cannot stop naxalism with force. We have to formulate definitive policies to create opportunities for everyone to fully grow to their potential and successfully work out their aspirations. Reorganizing the governance and formulation of policies for this end will be a major theme for Lok Satta.
