Kondagaon (Chhattisgarh), Aug 4 (ANI): Tribal girls in the Naxal-infested Kondagaon village of Chhattisgarh have picked up hockey sticks over guns, in a blow to Naxals who for years have been using these gullible tribals to further their devious agenda. These girls have been working extremely hard and now with the help of proper training being provided to them by Indo-Tibetan Border Polic or ITBP instructors, their dreams seem to have got wings. Recently, they even proved their excellence in the game by securing the second position in a competition. These tribal girls have an immense passion for sports; it’s just the training that they need to prove their potential. With such sport-based interventions, tribal children, who have always been the soft target of Naxals, can be encouraged to get involved in positive activities, thus leading to complete eradication of these left-wing radicals.
