In a bid to prevent youngsters from joining the Naxal ranks, the Madhya Pradesh government is planning to launch various development works and the recruitment drive for the police and other departments in the Naxal-hit Balaghat district, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said.

Chouhan, who chaired a meeting of officials in Balaghat on Sunday, directed them to prepare block-wise schemes to check Naxal activities in the district.

“These schemes will speed up development and ensure employment for local youths. Special attention should be paid to road connectivity, irrigation and employment in the villages falling under the Naxal-affected development blocks. Forest rights should be given to the eligible people on priority,” he said.

Chouhan also lauded police officials for curbing Naxal activities in the area and said the government is mooting to recruit youths in the police and other departments in the district.

“Police personnel combating Naxalism will be given out-of-turn promotion,” he said.

This investment is likely to employ 10,000 people in the area, he added.

“Entrepreneurs have shown interest in setting up biofuel ethanol and Ferromanganese units in the Balaghat district, which has forest and minerals in abundance. Infrastructure will be arranged for industries,” he said.
