force s rength to ensure a secure environment for the upcoming general elections The Sukma attack comes as a wake-up call at a time when the intensity of Maoist violence had appeared to be steadily declining That decline — arguably in the face of the twin strategy of wide-ranging joint security operations begun in 2009 by Central paramilitary and state police forces and developmental outreach — had been confirmed by an internal document of the CPI(Maoist) last year that acknowledged an erosion of manpower and munitions as well as ideological reach For the state as was underlined on Tuesday there can be no room for complacency There must be an urgent reassessment of the practices of security personnel on the ground and they must be educated anew about the inviolability of SOPs At the same time despite the temptations of the election season political point-scoring must be avoided The Maoists will continue their guerrilla war as long as the state’s writ is not firmly re-established in the affected districts They will not bid for peace until they find themselves completely outmanoeuvred and unable to sustain their fight There can be no relenting in the project of reclaiming the

attack happened in Dikwa some 90 kilometres (55 miles) from the Borno state capital Maiduguri on Tuesday morning and is believed to be a reprisal for a military strike on Boko Haram strongholds in the area last week It will again raise security fears about the safety of internally displaced people (IDPs) and put pressure on the government which maintains it has the upper hand against the insurgents and is pushing for the return of civilians caught up in the violence Rescue workers transport a victim of suicide bomb attack at a refugee camp AP Nigeria’s Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo deputising for President Muhammadu Buhari who has been on holiday described it as "regrettable that the heartless terrorists chose to unleash their wickedness on people who were taking refuge from previous acts of destruction in their homes" He promised those behind the attack would be hunted down and ordered that "formidable security in and around the IDP camps in the country be beefed up and renewed measures put in place to guard against future occurrences" The head of the Borno State Emergency Management Agency Satomi Ahmed earlier told AFP 35 bodies were recovered from the camp which houses some 53600 people with 78 injured He later said the other dead had been buried locally leading to the revised toll "From what we gathered three female suicide bombers disguised as IDPs arrived at IDP camp at about 6:30 am (0530 GMT)" he said "Two of them detonated their explosives The third one refused to set off hers when she realised her parents and siblings were in the camp She surrendered herself to

attack in the village of Nguetchewe in northern Cameroon AFP Jammu: Congress on Monday termed Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ initiative as a "fallacy" with no correspondent development in the field of defence tax regime and the price of essential commodities in its one-year regime "One of the biggest ‘Make in India’ failures is the multi-billion dollar Rafale Fighter Jet deal that the Prime Minister signed with French Government The new deal now seems to be promoting ‘make in France’ rather than make in India" Congress spokesperson Meem Afzal told reporters here Representational image PTI He alleged that the deal negotiated for over three years through a transparent bidding process by the UPA government envisaged sale of only 18 Rafale fighter aircrafts from France and production of the remaining 108 aircrafts by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) through the transfer of technology agreement "Modi government bypassed the established defense procurement procedure and defense acquisition council to unilaterally order 36 Rafale fighter aircrafts from France with no clarity on the transfer of technology or their production in India by HAL" Afzal said The spokesperson said that the Modi government had pitched Make in India initiative at every opportune moment but has done nothing to address the challenges of building global competitiveness in manufacturing demands restructuring of the inverted tax structure levelling the high cost of inputs and resolving the crucial logistics issues "Exports have actually reduced to USD 2388 billion in January 2015 as against USD 2689 billion a year earlier Agricultural exports of wheat rice and corn also have seen a drop of nearly 29 per cent in 2014-15 ie equivalent to 135 lakh tons Export of other commodities like tea coffee tobacco spices etc has recorded a negative growth" he said Afzal also criticised the Modi government on the recent successive hikes of petrol prices on May 1 and 15 "Government has made a whopping Rs 90000 crore from the hike in petroleum prices and this benefit directly goes to the oil companies as we continue to maintain that this is a government of the corporate" he said He said that the Congress had laid a solid economic foundation of the country and despite the global recession India witnessed an upward trend in the ten year rule of the UPA "From 2004-2014 Indian economy grew at an astounding average of 76 per cent per capita income rose to three fold from Rs 24143 in 2004 to Rs 68747 in 2012 Industry grew at 77 per cent service sector at 95 per cent and agriculture at 41 per cent" he said He said that in the past one year of the Narendra Modi government even the corporate has started losing its confidence in the government "The rural economy and population is in severe distress the rail freight hike will impact the railway industries and the rural economy" he said He added that the price of essential commodities continue to be high and the common people were feeling the heat PTI New Delhi: Twenty-three Indians have so far joined the Islamic State of which six were reportedly killed even as it emerged that the dreaded terror outfit considered South Asian Muslims including Indians inferior to Arab fighters in the conflict zone of Iraq and Syria According to an intelligence report prepared by foreign agencies and shared with Indian agencies fighters from India Pakistan Bangladesh as well as certain countries like Nigeria and Sudan are considered not good enough by IS and often tricked into suicide attacks Representational image Reuters The report said that a total of 23 Indians have so far joined the IS of which six were reportedly killed in different incidents The dead were identified as Athif Vaseem Mohammad (Adilabad Telangana) Mohammad Umar Subhan (Bangalore Karnataka) Maulana Abdul Kadir Sultan Armar (Bhatkal Karnataka) Saheem Farooque Tanki (Thane Maharashtra) Faiz Masood (Bangalore Karnataka) and Mohammad Sajid alias Bada Sajid (Azamgarh Uttar Pradesh) The intelligence report suggests that there is a disproportionately high level of casualties among the South Asian and African foreign terrorist fighters since they are forced to the frontlines of battle as foot soldiers The Arab fighters with better battle experience are mostly positioned behind these fighters and hence their casualties are proportionally less in terms of their total numbers This explains why so many Indians from a small Indian contingent have died it says There appears to be clear hierarchy wherein the Arab fighters are preferred as officer cadre and provided better arms and ammunition equipment accommodation and salaries "The fighters from South Asia are usually housed in groups in small barracks and are paid less than the Arab fighters and are provided inferior equipment" the input says There are reports that the so-called inferior fighters are also at times tricked into suicide attacks Usually they are given a vehicle loaded with explosives and asked to go near a targeted destination and call a certain number who would purportedly come and meet them to explain the mission However as soon as the number is dialled the car explodes due to a pre-set mechanism aimed at destroying a specific target The intelligence report says there is information that foreign fighters of Chinese Indian Nigerian and Pakistani origin are housed together and are monitored closely by the IS Police Incidentally only Tunisian Palestinian Saudi Arabian Iraqi and Syrian are allowed to be in the IS Police force which is barred for fighters of all other nationalities Hence there is a clear trust deficit between the dominant Arab fighters from other nationalities who are mostly attracted to IS through its sophisticated propaganda techniques on the Internet So on the other side who is fighting the Islamic State AFP brings you the lowdown after operations by warplanes from France’s Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier were launched on Monday: Syrian and Iraqi armies – SYRIA: The Syrian army numbered 178000 troops in 2015 according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) Syria’s army has been roughly
