Maoism and students of college and universities in West Bengal
In the 70's many brilliant college and university students of West Bengal were involved with the naxal movement.
In his opinion, this time also many students of college and universities support Maoists and as per him it is a "fashionable trend" in different state universities.
Governor finds it guilty that a part of the civil society is also backing the Maoists. MK Narayanan, the former National Security adviser appealed well minded citizens for support so that the Maoist violence doesn't go out of control. Maoists are spreading all over India very rapidly and they are adopting modern techniques of violence. Governor said that only security forces are not sufficient to stop this violence of Maoists. Citizens also have some responsibility. He said "We need to take a comprehensive, encompassing, political, economical and security approach to reach a satisfactory solution to the Maoist problem."
