Statesman News Service

BHUBANESWAR, 24 JULY: Replying to the debate on demand for grants of the home department in the Assembly today, Mr Patnaik said 3000 more tribal youths from Naxal infested areas will be recruited as Special police force. This will be in addition to the existing 2,100 special police personnel.

The move, besides the one for special recruitment drive by the army for which the CM has requested the defence ministry is aimed at preventing tribal youth being inducted by Maoists.
Mr Patnaik said that steps to open at least one ITI in each block to enhance employability of youths, spending at least Rs 2 lakh per district in tribal areas for sports activities and filling up vacant paramedical staff posts in all schedule areas of the state are part of the plans drawn up by his government.
