Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister P Chidambaram along with the Government are serious towards rooting out naxalites from the country, Union Minister V Narayan Samy also said.

All the party leaders and workers wanted the three decade old menace to be root out from the state, Vora said.
Not only the Congress leaders but also the Congress led UPA government was providing all assistance to the state in dealing with the situation, the former Chief Minister of undivided Madhya Pradesh said.
It was now up to the state government how it was utilising the forces and other assistance, replying to another question, Vora said.
