Speaking on the occasion, he said the Maoists would be adequately rehabilitated if they joined the mainstream.

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.

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.
