Tuesday’s Supreme Court judgment directing the Chhattisgarh government to immediately stop recruiting local tribal people as Special Police Officers for operations against Maoists will be a major operational blow for the Centre’s anti-Maoist policy, state government officials and security officers have told DNA.
Officially, though, the Chhattisgarh government put up a brave face, saying it will seek legal opinion before deciding on the next course of action.
“We have not yet gotten a copy of the judgment,” said Baijendra Kumar, principal secretary to the chief minister, Chhattisgarh.
“Once we get a copy, we will study it and consult legal experts before taking appropriate action. We will respect the decision of the Supreme Court.”
But speaking on condition of anonymity, senior paramilitary officers, state government officials and state police officers were unanimous that the apex court’s decision is a major setback to the Union home ministry’s anti-Maoist operations, and that it will be a shot in the arm for the Maoists.
