The Jharkhand government has been successful in controlling naxalism in its nearly thousand days of governance, Chief Minster Raghubar Das today said.
He also said the government reached out to the remotest villages through 'Sarkar Aap Ke Dwar' programmes where once the Maoists used to organise 'Jan Adalats' to kill innocents.
He also thanked all security personnel for risking their lives to control the Left-wing extremism.
'Sarkar Aap ke Dwar' has reached to the villages and brought peace to these villages instead of 'Jan Adalats' by the extremists, Das told PTI in an interview.
"Jharkhand was infamous for extremism. I believe development will happen where peace is there. Therefore, I focused on security. And I thank all the jawans of the police, CRPF and CoBRA for risking their lives and controlling more than 50 per cent of extremism in 1000 days," Das said.
He said one could see no big incident happening during his governance because of the effective law and order and security measures, adding the government's aim was to free the state from extremism.
The government has planned to finish off naxalism by the end of this year.
He said that in the 1000 days of governance he has succeeded in employing about one lakh youth in the departments of education, health, rural development, forest, security forces and other departments.
He said that 50,000 more youth would be employed over the next six months.
