I think by taking the oft used stance that "GoI must address their problems through dialogue and not force" is a bunch of nonsense. You are not supposed to start addressing people's grievances while they are executing your workforce. Once they start targeting state mechanisms and innocents you are supposed to use force, that is what the military is there for, not just to sit and lay eggs on LoC. Also such an argument gives credibility to their militancy and their fight will wage on with many new recruits who have seen how successful naxalites have been against the government. They are killing at will and at the same time have politicians in their hands, promising to bring development and address grievances while being ambushed in the jungles. Sure you can alleviate the suffering of poor and innocent and bring economic and human development, but not at the cost of bowing to the whims of terrorism. You can eradicate terror and propel a neglected segment of your society forward at the same time. It just takes creativity, funding, talented individuals and a resolute central command.
