Then Revenue Minister Jai Singh Agrawal (Minister Jai Singh Agrawal) and now MP Deepak Baij have also made a stir against the Central Government. Congress MP has also clearly challenged the central government. Targeting the Central Government, he has warned that if the Center has not taken paddy, we will not give the mineral of Bastar.

There is a dispute about this

It may be known that the Congress government of Chhattisgarh had promised to give 25 lakh rupees the support price of paddy to the farmers, but the central government is not ready for this. The Center has placed a condition that if the paddy is purchased in excess of the fixed price, then the bonus amount will not be given. Apart from this, the state government is also putting pressure on the central government to take rice from the central pool.

Congress said this

It may be known that PCC Chief Mohan Markam had openly threatened the central government to block the economic blockade. While reviewing the preparations for the movement against the central government, Mohan Markam had said that PM Narendra Modi (PM Narendra Modi) likes the iron ore of Chhattisgarh, the mineral resources here, but not the paddy. Therefore, if required, economic blockade will be done in the state.

In Bastar, now there is no panic like earlier, development has begun

(Editors Note: In April this year, the Home Ministry had removed the names of 44 districts from the Left-wing extremist districts, it was a signal that Maoist influence has reduced in the country, it is the result of such a multi-pronged strategy. Under which efforts are being made to bring the locals away from the Maoist ideology through aggressive security and continuous development. However, when these Maoists are in Maoist-hit areas The threat is still hidden in the forests - the losers are desperate to wounded and overturned. In the Maoists 'stronghold, the development of development works just below the extremists' nose is the real challenge in the administration. Then what is the real situation on the ground? Firstpost reporter Devbrat Ghosh is going to see this in Maoist bastion of Bastar in Chhattisgarh. Bastar left most of extremist extremism The Maoists have done their biggest attacks in this series. In this series we will see how the villages have changed here, how eager the villages are, and these are not the names of the end. How many threats the administration and the security forces face in the campaign to increase development work among the Maoists who take them.)

Deobrut Ghosh

The evening was seven and a quarter seven. In the dawn of the evening, the Darbha valley of Bastar began to look surreal and divine. But my heart was beating fast. Jagdalpur was still 38 kilometers away. According to the experience of reporting in this area, it was dangerous to stay here for reporting after sunset.

The terrible silence passed around, the forest in the dark, there is no populist population far and wide, telling the mobile outside of the coverage area ... it was all making sense to realize that it is not okay to undergo such Maoist area. .

My driver Umashankar, sitting in the cab, was the only model of life on that black and empty road. Just a few moments ago we left the Jhiram Valley. The memories of this valley were not good at all. In May 2013, in the bloody attack of Maoists, 31 people, including many Congress leaders, were killed in this area. I asked the driver in a hurry to reach Jagdalpur- How long will it take to reach While asking this, I tried my best not to see my fear. I tried my best to hide my fear, but driver Umashankar read my fear like an open book and came straight to the point and said, 'Sir, now there is no panic earlier. Today you can visit the cities like Dantewada, Sukma or Kanker anytime. Now the roads are also good, there will be no problem sir. '

How important is the Chhatisgarh plains for political parties

Bastar is regarded as the center of extremist extremism
Bastar is actually the area inhabited by several tribal groups with different dialects. It has been considered the center of extremism of the Left. Their attacks on the security forces have also been terrible. Their public advocates, who make quick decisions, are notorious for their vandalism. In these courts, everyone knows about what happens to the police informers. The motive is that only because of the open punishment, people are so scared that no one ever calls them off.

Bastar of Chhattisgarh was once the largest district of the country. Later, it was divided into 7 separate districts, to enable the administration to run smoothly. Even today, Bastar division (total area 39,117 sq km), Kerala (38,863 square kilometers) is bigger in the area than many states.
Bastar Since the Maoist went into the lap of terror, he has taken possession of every identity of this area. In return, this area has lost so much precious things. We lost the people of this area, we also lost our hands in a wonderful culture played in the lap of nature. In addition, we have lost all kinds of natural resources and precious minerals, which are littered in this area.

Although now it was a matter of the past, but I remember that same bastar. Umashankar's say was correct. In 2013, I went to Bastar for the last time. Then and in today's Bastar there is a difference in land and space. Well, we reached Jagdalpur without any unpleasant incident throughout the hour. A big surprise was waiting for us here. Jagdalpur city, which is the headquarters of Bastar district, was bathed in light of 8 pm. Food-shop shops, ice cream parlors, tea shops and department stores were full of people. People later told me that there is a similar kind of humiliation till 11 o'clock in the night.

400 Maoists killed in Chhattisgarh in two years

Despite the fear, people learned to live life in some areas of Bastar
Some years ago, such a lively Bastar could not even think about it. Although the evening was very faint and it did not feel that the Maoism had been eliminated in Bastar. But so much the idea could have been imposed that despite the fear of the Maoists, people have learned to live life in certain areas of Bastar.

The development work done by the central and state governments on the war-footing has started to result. Under this, the security forces take any area in their surroundings and the work of infrastructure or structural construction is done by the administration. In this way, the plan to throw the Maoists on the margins eventually came to an end. As a result, Maoists have always been the stronghold of the Maoists. This area is slowly but rightly now shrinking.

Explain that this fast, organized and robust growth was started in 2011 by the then Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh of the then UPA Government. In the same year in August of that year, the CRPF had made a tremendous attack on the Maoists in the Saranda area of ​​Singhbhum district of Jharkhand. For the first time that year, about a decade later, the tricolor was hoisted in Saranda.

Jairam Ramesh has indeed taken the palm that the success of the security forces can be done to prove the stability of the situation after this incident. The result came out as a Saranda Development Plan. The same scheme got security cover for Sarna area, which proved to be a strong shield against the Maoists. Because of this security, the Center, the State and the district administration could develop it here, whose lack of understanding was mainly due to tribal Vasinde here. So far, the people of this region were deprived of this development due to the indifference of the state governments and the fear of Maoism.

Narendra Modi's government raised the responsibility of Saranda Development Model itself
Since Jairam Ramesh was himself involved in this work, the SDP ie the Sarna Development Project initially hoped some expectations. However, due to administrative shortcomings, the scheme was subsequently split during the remaining UPA regime. Later, the Narendra Modi government took up the responsibility of the Saranda Development Model, did a tremendous job. Modi's government increased the operation of the security forces tremendously against the Maoists. These operations proved to be more successful than P Chidambaram's 'Operation Green Hunt', then Home Minister of that time.

During the UPA, there was a lot of discussion about the success of Green Hunt. On the other hand, in the areas which were free-zone, where there was no fear of panic, the development work was started very fast. The message given to tribals of those areas was clear- choose one of the sweetness of Maoism and the sweetness of development. Minister of State for Home Hansraj Ahir said in his written reply to the Lok Sabha in March 2018: "The government has taken steps to protect against the leftist terrorists, steps should be taken to ensure safety, development work and local people The work will be done to give their rights and entitlements. As the geographical expansion of the Maoists has decreased and the incidence of violence has decreased, it can be said that due to this policy, the overall level of security has been very good. Obviously this has also accelerated development work.

But Bastar's picture is completely different from Saranda. It is a matter of work of development in a village free from the horror of Maoism. And the work of infrastructure in a village fearing terror is a different thing. In these villages, both government employees and villagers are afraid of leftist terror. This is the situation in the villages of seven districts of Bastar, which are still considered to be the stronghold of Maoist insurgency. Apart from this, it is also in the official list of 7 districts, ambitious districts of the country. Perhaps this is why the road connecting Jagdalpur with districts of Dantewada, Sukma, Bijapur, Kondagaon, Kanker and Narayanpur with Maoism has a special meaning.

Roads played an important role in connecting people here with mainstream
As I went further into these areas for the next 10 days, I noticed that the roads built in these areas have played the most important role in connecting people here with mainstream. The journey of development to the villages where the Maoists are in the strongholds is possible only through these roads. The roads did not do this, provided the tribals with essential things, such as hospitals, administration, school-college and market.

This is the road, which has increased the confidence of the people here so that they can now come to the villages having defenseless Maoism-affected villages. Of course, the biggest threat to the Maoists is not only with the security forces' rifle, but they are new roads which provide alternatives and opportunities to local tribesmen.

However, the country has to pay a huge price for constructing roads in such areas of terror. Many CRPF jawans, policemen and people engaged in the construction work in making them, the Maoists have targeted their bullets. In the memory of the soldiers of the CRPF who went to protect these roads, a martyr memory gate has been built on Bijapur-Basaguda road in Bijapur district, which is also known for the bitter realignment of roads in the Bastar region. Offers.

Bastar commissioner Dilip Vasnikar told the FirstPost: "In the last 5 years, the entire development work in the Bastar division has been done very fast and the result of this is that the Maoists have gone a long way in these areas. You will find that the dhabas on the side of roads are open in the night, without any fear. Our children are going to civil services, passing the IIT examinations. And now Bastar has also been connected with rail and air traffic. "

New roads for thousands of kilometers under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana
In the last 5 years, 3,998 kilometers of roads were built under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojna. Vasanikar explains, 'The roads have been constructed at the record level under this scheme. Today, 8,588 km long roads have been made to connect the district headquarters to the villages in Bastar division. This is one of the biggest achievements of this government. Through these roads, the daily needs of the tribal village people here are also better served than before. '

Union Road and Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari had announced in Raipur in January 2015 that under the RRP, ie road safety scheme, the government will construct 7,294 km of roads in Naxal-affected areas. These are important roads, which will work to connect badly affected areas with Naxalism, such as the road connecting Dantewada and Sukma. According to an official of the CRPF, under the RRP, the construction of 451-km long roads of 14 national highways (National Highways) in the security of CRPF in Bastar was completed, out of which 244 kilometer long road has been completed.

Traveling through these areas, apart from the good roads, things also attract attention. On both sides of the road, new educational institutions, hospitals, primary health centers are seen and government efforts are seen to be coloring. In addition to the plans of the Center, development schemes of Chhattisgarh government are also working. In the area of ​​Bastar, in the last 5 years, the state government opened 9 new government colleges. These include engineering and medical colleges. Apart from this, two Government Hospitals, 101 Ayurvedic Hospitals, 140 Ayush Centers, 8 Primary Health Centers, 13 Sub-Health Centers, 41 Higher Secondary Schools and 58 High Schools have been opened. Free coaching centers for the skill development center, a nursing training college, civil services, IIT and other competitive examinations have also been opened by the government.

In the last 5 years, new bank has opened in Bastar, has improved mobile connectivity
The report of a major bank shows that 112 new branches and 115 ATMs of banks have been opened in the Bastar division from the year 2013 through to 2018. Over a decade ago, mobile connectivity in Bastar was like a nightmare. It was difficult for the police and the security forces to run the operation even in difficult terrain due to difficulties running mobile. To improve mobile connectivity, 225 new mobile towers were installed. Talking to a mobile without having connection here for an outsider is still almost impossible. Especially when you are traveling.

D. M. Awasthi, head of anti-Naxal campaign in Chhattisgarh, says, "Despite the blockades, the work of development in the Naxal-affected areas is going on fast. Especially due to the roads, we are getting help in retreating the Naxalites. And now, the attitude towards the development of people is also changing.

Ramesh Nayyar, senior journalist from Raipur, says, "Through the government's education scheme" effort "has helped in educating a large number of tribal children. Schools, colleges and professional institutions have been opened in tribal areas which were notorious for Naxalism. With these efforts children's interest in reading tribal areas has also increased greatly. Maoists burnt schools in these areas. I hope that the teachers who left school because of the Maoist terror, they will all return after seeing the roads and development. '

Both Dilip Vasinkar and D.M. Awasthi attribute this development to former Chief Secretary of State Vivek Dhand, who recently retired from this post. D. M. Awasthi said that like the CEO of the state, Vivek Dhand gave direction to all the development plans in the area of ​​Bastar. To take stock of construction work, he used to contact contractors directly and motivate those who work in these projects.

Vasinkar believes that since Dhand Sahab has been a Commissioner of the area of ​​Bastar, he is aware of the forts of this entire division. In the last three and a half years, from the road to the opening of new institutions in this area, he has been taking stock of all the development work.

Maoists could not join Bastar rail due to panic, ignoring
For decades, due to many reasons such as the rugged terrain of Bastar, the Maoist terror and the ignorance of politicians, this area could not be linked to the rail. There was only one way to reach Bastar or to get there, sick roads there. Now there is a rail route from Jagdalpur to Visakhapatnam, two more rail routes are open, both from Jagdalpur and Dalli-Rajhara, to Bhanupratappur.
