Bhubaneswar: Modi government is committed to fighting a strong battle against Naxalism, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said.

Shah, who reviewed the LWE situation and the disaster management initiatives in Odisha here on Friday, said once upon a time this entire region was affected by Naxalism, but in the last 9 years, Modi government, along with the state government has successfully tried to crack down on Naxalism and it has yielded results also.

Lavishly praising Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik, the Union Home Minister said Patnaik has always supported the Central Government in cracking down on Naxalism.

He said Naveen Patnaik has implemented every disaster management initiative of the Modi Government at the grassroots level.

Odisha government itself has taken many new initiatives in the field of disaster management and has showed the whole country that when central and state governments work together, natural disasters can be mitigated.

Thousands of people had lost their lives in the cyclone that hit Odisha in 1999, but today whenever a cyclone hits Odisha, there are zero casualties, which is appreciated all over the world, Shah said.

He said the Prime Minister has given utmost priority to disaster management and Odisha govt has worked alongside central government to ensure zero casualty during disaster.

Shah further said He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made disaster management an important and integral part of governance through NDRF and NDMA and the Odisha government has fully supported it.

He said on this date on August 5 the Prime Minister had taken the historic decision to abrogate Art-370, which paved the way for peace and development in Jammu and Kashmir.

Today Kashmir ,Shah said has not only joined the mainstream but has witnessed the path of development along with peace.
