      Raipur, January 19, 2009: Unlike his predecessors, Union Home Minister P Chidambaram will take the review meeting on the internal security situation of Chhattisgarh at its Mantralaya today.

      Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, Home Minister Nanki Ram Kanwar, Chief Secretary P Joy Oommen, Home Secretary N K Aswal and Director General of Police Vishwa Ranjan would present the case of the state before the Union Home Minister, officials told ChhattisgarhTopNews.Com.

      It was the practice of the home ministers to take the review meeting at the Raj Bhawan, but Chidambaram preferred to have that at the Secretariat for many reasons, they said.

      Chidambaram would begin his tour of the naxal affected states from Chhattisgarh and after Raipur he would be visiting Jharkhand most likely in two days time and then Bihar, they said.

     When Chhattisgarh is understood to have geared up to ask for financial help for combating left wing extremism in the state, the Central Minister would be armed with statistics on financial aid from the Centre and central forces deployment in the state to question the failure of the state in police modernisation and controlling the naxal violence.

      After giving 17 battalion of central para military forces the Centre had stressed for improving intelligence network in the state, where as Chhattisgarh had created a new model in which a DIG ranked officer had been made in charge to collect intelligence on naxal front, which was earlier been manned by an Additional Director General ranked officer.
