    India has more Home-Grown Terrorists than any country in the World. Some of the Elected Politicians like LALU has Soft corner, Soliciting or Sheilding Home Growns and most of the Corrupted Politicians had proved themselves ” GAYS ” to deal against Terrorism by State or Non State actors to protect civilians. The country is Constantly ” BLEEDING ” by 2 side of Attack. Merciless KILLING SPREE by Terrorists & LOOTING SPREE by some Corrupted Politicians. India had tried enough DISHWASHERS as COOKS for curing Terrorism Recipe on the sacrifice of Civilians, but never made it. Is Home Ministry & Defence Ministry capable to handle Naxals-Maoists? If not ” KICK ” them out. Govt interested to show the growth of 8-9% of the country but not cannot ” TACKLE ” the growth of Terrorism by more than 300%. INDIA SHINING by NAXALISM and MAOISM.
