Jana defends curbs on naxal meets

By Our Staff Reporter

WARANGAL, NOV. 7. The Home Minister, K. Jana Reddy, on Sunday made it clear that the decision to deny permission for meetings planned by naxal groups rested with local officials as they had a better idea of the situation prevailing in their respective areas.

Mr. Reddy, who was here in connection with the inauguration of the police sports meet, told presspersons that instances of naxalite groups instigating people and indulging in extortions had come to his notice. "The police cannot sit quiet in such cases. However, the Government will review all that,'' he added.

The talks with naxal groups would continue till all issues were discussed threadbare. He, however, said no timeframe could be set for conclusion of the dialogue process.

On the possible date for the second phase of talks and the controversial statements coming from different quarters, the Home Minister said certain questions could not be answered as the Government worked within the framework of the Constitution.
