Manohar Parrikar rules out Army deployment in anti-Naxal operation
Ruling out the possibility of deploying Army in anti-Naxal operations, DM Manohar Parrikar on Wednesday said if demanded, armed forces would extend “logistical support” and “provide training” to police in tackling the menace. “Foreigners are not involved in it (naxal movement). We use army where outside forces are involved. We use army against terrorists in Kashmir,” Parrikar told reporters in response to a query on whether army would be roped against growing naxalism in Chhattisgarh.
