Chhattisgarh BJP to provide life insurance to cadres in Maoist-affected areas

With a view to uplift the morale of about 200 party cadets working in Maoist-affected area, the Chhattisgarh Bhartiya Janta Party legislator Santosh Bafna has announced to offer a LIC life risk cover of Rs 5 lac each

This decision has been taken aftermath of the Maoist attack on Congress rally in Chhattisgarh's Bastar on May 25th this year, which almost killed the top leadership of the state Congress. This incident has heightened the concerns of the ruling party over its campaign in Maoist-affected areas.

“Anxiety prevailed among the party activists about their safety. My initiative is aimed to encourage the party-men for electioneering in the sensitive zones of Bastar,“ Jagdalpur legislator Sri Bafna said.

Bastar has 12 assembly seats out of which BJP won 11 in 2008 assembly election, which played a vital role in formation of government. However, this has provided a chance to the Congress party to attack on the government, which said it showed that even the BJP feels their people are unsafe since the state 'failed' to offer the common man a sense of security.
