      The epicentre of the Naxals is the leftist insutions and unless these connections are severed,such attacks will continue.Our's is a country with worst polity,beauraucracy and second to none human rights activists,who will be behind bars in advanced countries for their nefarious activities.They enjoy five star perquisites,through illegal transfers and fish in troubled waters.
