Union Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba has reviewed the Left Wing Extremism (LWE) scenario with Chief Secretaries and DGPs of affected states in the national capital.
It was observed that there has been a consistent decline in violence and considerable shrinkage in the geographical spread of LWE in the last five years, an official communiqué said.
The review of LWE affected districts last year resulted in a reduction of Security Related Expenditure (SRE) districts from Rs. 126 to Rs. 82 crore.
On this occasion, Union Home Secretary stated the need for continued operations and stressed upon filling up areas of the security vacuum.
Making mobile communication more effective and improvement in the working conditions of the security forces deployed were also discussed during the meet.
