Lessons learnt from Chattisgarh tragedy..

Praveen Swami from The Hindu, wrote this article today on how unprepared the police forces are, in Naxal affected areas. It gives a lot of information, and also exposes the sad state of preparedeness in some states.
You know, I feel very sad that we lose precious lives because we didn't invest well into machinery and training for police. They lose their lives for no fault of theirs, and we very quickly forget their sacrifice. We never want to learn from just one tragedy, we need multiple tragedies to learn. After hundreds of lives lost, and scores of incidents, we are then told - ohh yeah, we didn't have enough equipment to deal with them!!
And see what the reverred former Home Minister, Mr. Shivraj Patil had to say when he was at the helm - "“Force alone cannot be a solution,” the former Union Home Minister, Shivraj Patil, said in the wake of the killing of 24 police personnel in the Elampatti-Regadgatta forests of Dantewada district of Bastar division in Chhattisgarh on July 9, 2007."
Neither did he find a solution, nor did he go along with equipping the forces better. This man was a disaster. A disaster that should not have been allowed to happen.

very true about we losing police due to lack of training. post the mum disaster we now know that police personnel are asked to attend firing excercises at the range only once a year . so what is the kind of readiness can one expect from pot bellied personnel who are busy streamlining political party rallies on a regular basis .
