Govt policy encourages Naxals to surrender

Realising the futility of violence, many Naxal leaders and misguided youth have given up arms under the Government's surrender-cum-rehabilitation policy. In Jharkhand, 35 naxals have already surrendered their weapons and joined the mainstream. The Government and local police have stepped up their campaign to encourage the Naxals to take advantage of the surrender-cum-rehabilitation policy.
