Press Trust of India  |  Patna 

The Champaran district had seen several great personalities like Mahatma Gandhi and Orwell whose best-seller "Animal Farm" is famous for delving into the reality of living in a communist state, Parma Shivan, new commandant of 153rd battalion CRPF said.

Shivan said he lamented the grip of the CPI (Maoist) over the district and assured that the CRPF would leave no stone unturned to root out the Reds from the area.

"For this we will take the help of civil police and strengthen relation with the people under Maoists' influence," he said.

Under a civic action plan, the CRPF would impart training to 30 youths of Maoist-infested villages with the help of an NGO to provide them job, the commandant added.
