Says talks posible only if they shun violence

HUVINAHADAGALI (BELLARY DISTRICT): Home Minister M.P. Prakash has said
that the Government would adopt a multi-pronged programme to end the
naxal menace in the State. "Priority would be accorded to end the
naxal menace in the State. The Government proposes to tackle problems
by taking up development work, dialogue and persuasion," he said.

Mr. Prakash told presspersons during his visit to his hometown on
Saturday that the Government would be firm against those indulging in
violence. "The Government would take steps to improve the
underdeveloped areas and ensure economic empowerment of the poor. The
Government is ready to have dialogue with the naxals if they come out
with important issues in a democratic way and within the legal
framework by shedding violence. At the same time, the Government would
not bow to killings and violence but would deal with such situations
with an iron hand," he said.

To a question, Mr. Prakash said the authorities had been taking action
against those who had been posing as naxalites and indulging in
anti-social activities.

Modern equipment and special training for police personnel would be
provided to tackle the cyber crime and atrocities on women and
children. The Government had proposed to provide infrastructure and
facilities, including housing, a proper transfer policy, education and
health of their children to enable the police personnel to discharge
their duties properly.

The Minister said he had proposed to set up a police training centre
either in Bellary or in Hospet besides taking steps to rejuvenate the
buildings housing the police stations and build new ones wherever
