On the Naxalite movement: A report with a difference

The report, Development Challenges in Extremist Affected Areas, authored by an expert group set up by the Planning Commission, looks at the Naxalite/Maoist movement in a way that is different from the prevalent official attitude and draws attention to many of the positive effects of the movement. The report rejects the official "security-centric' approach in dealing with the movement and instead suggests an "ameliorative approach with emphasis on a negotiated solution'.
