ELURU: Some movement of Maoists has been noticed in interior tribal villages of West Godavari and the district police are fully geared up to face any extremist threat, Superintendent of Police M Ravi Prakash has said.The SP inspected Velairpadu police station on Thursday. Speaking on the occasion, he said the Maoists would be adequately rehabilitated if they joined the mainstream. The reward announced on the head of Maoists would be provided to them if they gave up arms, he said.
Highlighting the welfare schemes and development programmes being implemented by the government in agency areas, the SP urged tribal youth to utilise them properly for their economic uplift without getting influenced by the extremist ideology.
The SP also said he would urge the Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA) to take up more schemes, including provision of vocational training to tribal youth to wean them away from the influence of CPI (Maoist). Foolproof security arrangements were made at Polavaram project in the wake of threat perception to it from Maoists. The tribals displaced by the Polavaram project would be adequately rehabilitated, he said. Ravi Prakash asked DSPs, Circle Inspectors and Sub-Inspectors to conduct Janamaitri meetings in agency areas to reach out to tribal people and win their confidence.
