India for zero tolerance towards terrorism, left wing extremism.

Mumbai, Feb 10 (ANI): India has said a plan of action is on the anvil to check terror attacks and rein in left-wing extremists.

"Both in case of terrorism and in case of Naxalites (Maoists), left wing extremism our policy is zero tolerance. We will not tolerate any act of terror. We will not tolerate left wing extremist activity," Chidambaram said in Mumbai after reviewing the internal security situation in the state on Monday.

The attack underlined the persistent threat that authorities face from rebel activity ahead of national elections expected by May.

Chidambaram said a plan of action was agreed upon to counter the Maoists and would be implemented soon.

"I am very saddened by the loss of 15 lives in Gadchiroli. Naxalism poses a threat to Maharashtra was confined to three districts Gadchiroli and Gondia. Now, it is moved to even to Gujarat-Maharashtra border. So, we have agreed upon a plan of action that will be implemented," he said.

At least 200 people were killed in attacks in Mumbai late last year while suspected Maoists killed 15 policemen in the same state last month.

Maoists say they are fighting for the rights of poor farmers and landless labourers in an insurgency Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has described as one of the gravest threats to the country's internal security. (ANI)
