New Delhi, Sep 26 (UNI) Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said on Sunday left-wing extremism areas have been reduced to only three districts in the state.
"Left-wing extremism areas in Odisha have been reduced to only three districts," Patnaik told reporters here on Sunday after attending the review meeting of 'Left-Wing Extremism' affected states chaired by Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
He informed that in the meeting, he has proposed various measures which are required to combat left-wing extremism.
Earlier, in his address, Patnaik said,"Over the last two years we have been fighting against Covid pandemic. Even during this testing times, Odisha sustained its efforts to curb left-wing extremism activities. From 70 per cent of the districts affected during the peak, now we hardly have parts of three districts."
"Accessibility and economic prosperity is the biggest anti left-wing extremism measure we should aim for," he asserted.
Expressing gratitude to the Union Home Minister for convening the meeting, Patnaik said, "Left-wing extremism is still a critical internal security challenge for the nation".
