An activist who belongs to the Communist Party of India is referred to as a "naxalite." They conduct business throughout India, primarily in West Bengal and less developed rural areas in the country's south and east. The continuous conflict between the Naxalites and the Indian government is known as the Naxalite-Maoist insurgency.
The term Naxal has its roots in the village Naxalbari in West Bengal, where the violent moment was organized by a section of the Communist Party of India. Over three thousand people had been killed in Naxalite Government conflicts between 2002 – 2005. The conflict has displaced 350,000 members of tribal groups from their ancestral lands with hundreds of people being killed annually in clashes between the CPI-Maoists and the government every year since 2005. The naxalites also mounted an attack on a BSF patrol team near Kurenar. The incident came a few weeks after the Naxals ambushed a team of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in Sukma, Chhattisgarh, killing 25 of its policemen providing security for road construction in the area.
Government of India launched a new security operation policy to deal with Naxalites called 'SAMADHAN' - Smart leadership, Aggressive strategy, Motivation and Training, Actionable intelligence, Dashboard-based key performance indicators and key result areas, Harnessing technology, Action plan for each threat, No access to funding. This problem can't be resolved through bullets or any shortcuts, but through short-term, medium-term and long term solutions. With the new strategies and full force, we will be successful against them.
