There has been significant improvement in the Left Wing Extremism (LWE) security situation in the country in the last five years. Government of India (GoI) approved ‘National Policy and Action Plan to address LWE’ in 2015. The Policy envisages a multi-pronged strategy involving security related measures, development interventions, ensuring rights and entitlements of local communities, etc.
Steadfast implementation of this policy has resulted in consistent decline in LWE violence across the nation.
The number of LWE related violent incidents have come down by 77% in 2022 in comparison to high of 2010. The number of resultant deaths (Security Forces + Civilians) have also reduced by 90% in 2022 as compared to high of 2010.
