  • A well-attended cremation of a “senior leader” in the CPI (Maoist) stronghold of Bijapur in south Bastar has led the Chhattisgarh police and central agencies to suspect that the dead leader is none other than the “most-wanted” CPI (Maoist) central committee member and secretary of Dandkarenya Special Zonal Committee, Ravula Srinivas alias Ramanna.

    Union Home Minister Amit Shah recently conducted a review of the force at its headquarters here after which he directed that the lead internal security force of the country should devise a mechanism that enables it to keep its fighting blood fresh and lethal at all times.A committee has been asked to submit its "specific" recommendations by Dec 15.

    The Congress general secretary's office has taken up the issue of the security breach that occurred on November 26 with the Central Reserve Police Force, they said.

    Home Minister Amit Shah is learnt to have asked heads of all central forces to switch to ‘Make-in-India’ products and promote use of khadi, including using Khadi fabric for uniforms. Home ministry officials confirmed the development saying that more than 1 million personnel of CRPF, BSF, SSB, ITBP, CISF, NSG and Assam Rifles will be using uniform made of terry-Khadi.

    Union home minister Amit Shah visited the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) headquarters and expressed his thoughts on Twitter saying the country is proud of the “exemplary valour” of CRPF personnel. With a strength of more than 300,000 personnel, the CRPF is designated as the lead force for internal security duties and anti-Maoist operations.

    Union Home Minister Amit Shah said security of Sonia Gandhi and her children Rahul and Priyanka has not been withdrawn but changed to 'Z-plus' with ambulance. Replying to the debate on the SPG (Amendment) Bill, he asserted that the BJP does carry out any action with a vindictive approach and it was the Congress which took many such decisions in the past.

    "Inputs indicate that attempts are being made by Pakistan-based terror outfits to reactivate its camp at Balakot and restart their religious and Jihadi indoctrination courses against India," Union minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy said replying a written question in Rajya Sabha.

    During his visit to the CRPF headquarters at the CGO Complex on Lodhi Road, Union Home Minister Amit Shah paid tributes to the force's personnel killed in the line of duty and put a garland around an urn containing the soil from the 'Sardar Post' in Gujarat's Rann of Kutch. The urn is kept at the headquarter's entrance.

    On Monday, the first day of the Winter Session, Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had raised the issue of SPG security, saying the move to withdraw the cover of party chief Sonia Gandhi and former president Rahul Gandhi was "arbitrary".

    At least six to eight bullets were fired by the terrorists at the CRPF post when the personnel were deployed on law and order duty in the area, officials said. The firing took place near a school where class 10 board examinations were underway.

    The West Bengal government has, in a letter to the MHA dated October 21, also sought to know why it was not consulted before the important decision was taken to hand over the security of Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar to the CRPF.
