The picture of Maoism before us is translucent. It is in fact an uphill task for the police to reach out to the secret documents and papers of the Maoists, which is why we remain aloof of the actual facets of Maoism," said Director General of Police (DGP) of Chhattisgarh police, Vishwaranjan while speaking on topic 'Challenges of Maoism' here on Wednesday.

A poet by nature, Vishwaranjan was giving lecture at Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication, organised by Mass Communication department. He spoke at length on the challenges that police face and tried giving ground realities prevailing in Chhattisgarh, although he parried the question raised on Binayak Sen's detention.

"Time has come for the people to decide whom they wish to support -- democracy or Maoism. If we look at the documents of Maoists we find the ideology presses on overtaking political power through use of weapon. Out of the total violent activities in the country, 95 per cent of them are Maoist centric," opined the DGP.

Apprising about the positive signs in the Maoist-hit State, Vishwaranjan said that still 30 per cent of Chhattisgarh is under Maoist control, other regions are being developed with basic amenities. However, crisis of adequate funds is quite a constraint in way of fledged development.

Quoting an example of Andhra Pradesh, he opined, "Andhra Pradesh police have succeeded in fighting the formidable Maoists, as AP police started the operation 30 years back. Here it has been started from past four years."
