Kanker (Chhattisgarh) [India], July 06 (ANI): Naxal-affected Kanker district of Chhattisgarh is in news again, but this time, it has nothing to do with any kind of violence.
In an endeavour to bring development in every corner of Chhattisgarh, the Kanker district Police are constructing roads in the Naxal-affected regions with the support of villagers in Jivlamari and Marapi.
The road is being constructed on rocky and steep terrain in a dense forest. Since the region is Naxal-affected, commandos have also been deployed at the place for the security of the villagers.

Reflecting on the same, SP Kanker, Kanhaiya Lal said, "Both villages were disconnected from various types of facilities like market, other villages etc. due to unavailability of road connection. Hence, we decided to construct a road and we also got an immense support from the villagers. As everyone knows it is a Naxal-affected area, security was deployed to keep a watch on surrounding to avoid any unwelcome situation. We also organised a camp to thank villagers who come out in our support."
Meanwhile, Janpad member Rajesh Bhaskar said, "This has been a demand of villagers for a long time. We held a meeting with villagers and they said they want to cooperate."
With the development, the villagers can now easily travel to the weekly markets to buy household products while children of small, primary and secondary levels can also come easily from the hilly villages.
Meanwhile, the Kanker collector assured that the water and electricity facilities will soon reach to every house of both villages.
Under the guidance of Bastar's Inspector General of Police Vivekananda Sinha, these two villages were adopted by Kanker's Superintendent of Police (SP) Kanhaiyalal Dhruv.(ANI)
