State BJP president K V Singhdeo on Wednesday condemned the killing of four BSF personnel in Koraput on Tuesday. The State Government has miserably failed to curb the menace of Left Wing extremists. The maladministration and non-governance of the Government in the far-flung areas is giving impetus to the Maoists, Singhdeo said.

 The Government does not have a defined strategy, but is only undertaking firefighting measures when attacks from the ultras occur. Ironically, even if there is adequate presence of para-military forces in the State, the Government has failed to formulate proper strategy to deploy them.

 Singhdeo further said the State Government has failed to implement and tackle governance issues. It has not been able to create capacity for better governance. Development schemes are not implemented in time due to acute shortage of field staff.

 Besides, ministers and bureaucrats are unwilling to visit the districts, particularly the Maoist affected districts, to review government programmes or to assuage the frustration of the Adivasis, he said.
