India weighs response to Maoist insurgency

Activists say land reform in troubled state is solution to decades of violent armed insurgency.

    There is a debate in India on the strategy to deal with Maoist rebels, who are regarded as one of the biggest internal threat to the country's security.

    That is after more than a dozen politicians were killed in an attack in Chhattisgarh State.

    Activists say the solution lies in sharing land resources with the locals, 75 percent of whom live in rural and remote areas and survive through farming.
