KORAPUT: Unity among tribals will keep the Maoists away and all round development will follow, said South Western Range DIG S Shyni at Sathi-2016, a Jan Sampark camp, at Narayanpatna on Saturday.

Emphasising on development of the block, she said the Government is committed to make Narayanpatna a developed block and sought the cooperation of locals in this regard. She also assured the people that police will provide all possible support to them. Maoists are luring students to their group to fight against the State, she said and called upon the students to shun violence.

Addressing the camp, Koraput SP Charan Singh Mina said police are trying their best to restore peace in Narayanpatna, but it is not possible unless people cooperate. He was hopeful that unity among tribals would definitely bring rapid development of Narayanpatna and restore its lost glory of being a peaceful district.  BSF DIG AK Sharma said the motto of the force is service for betterment of tribals. “We are committed to the cause,” he added.  Later, Shyni distributed forest land pattas among the landless villagers of Borigi.  Among others, BSF Commandant Subrat Sinha, Narayanpatna block chairperson Malati Tadingi, AP member Juro Mouka and Laxmipur SDPO Hemanth Padhi were present.
