The recent attack on Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is the direct result of the central government's failure to cut off the arms supply by jihadis and external terror groups to regional militant outfits like the People's War group of Naxalites.

A  top official in the Union home ministry told rediff.com that this nexus is directly responsible for the increasingly bold activities of Naxalites in Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. The outfits supplying arms include assorted jihadi groups operating in Jammu and Kashmir, Burma and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence.
