LUCKNOW: In a bid to include naxals in the main stream, Uttar Pradesh government today approved surrender and rehabilitation policy for naxalites.

The policy was approved in the cabinet meeting chaired by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav here. "The objective of the policy is to ensure inclusion of naxalites in the main stream by leaving violent activities. It will encourage youths, who had fallen into the trap of naxal activities, to surrender by providing them opportunities," government sources said.

The policy also ensures that those, who surrendered should not again involve in naxal activities, they said. The cabinet also approved over Rs 826 crores for construction of police building (signature building) and starting of 18 forensic labs and 67 mobile forensic vans in the state.
