Raipur, Nov 4 : Concerned over the Naxal activity in poll-bound Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee President and Rajya Sabha member Raj Babbar said “Naxals are revolutionaries” and said that “revolution” undertaken by them should be resolved through conversation not with the bullets.
Babbar said that decisions are not made with guns and the government should address their questions. Revolutionaries can’t be intimated or bribed.

Addressing a media briefing here on Sunday, Babbar said, “I only want to say that the people whose rights have been taken away, who are in misery, who are not being given their right worth, are laying their lives to get back their rights. However, usage of guns by either of the parties will not lead to any solution. A solution will only come out by addressing their problems and having a conversation with them.”
“Naxal movement was started for the rights. For these rights, we need to sit with people. Some people have lost their way and we need to bring them back on the right path,” he clarified.
He also attacked Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh for failing to provide proper health services in the state and said that the CM himself is a doctor and people had placed lots of hope but he failed them.
Chhattisgarh assembly polls will be held in two phases. In the first phase, voting will be held in 18 constituencies in the southern part of the state, while the second phase of elections will be held on November 20.
Counting of votes for both the phases will take place on December 11.
