Sarkar Aap Key Dwar in naxal pocket Palamu’s Uldanda is seen as a cessation of extremists’ Jan Adalat. The poor flocked the programme. Some return with smiles, more with a grudge said sources.
Sources said security set up for such a programme is never a scale down but the atmosphere of fear, which was prevalent some two or three years back is not palpable in places like Uldanda, which is a tribal dominated panchayat. Sources said the programme needs to be re organized. Sources said it should be classified into various categories like women & children, unskilled and unorganized labourers, senior citizenry etc.
