Gadchiroli,Development challenges in extremist affected areas? Howeverseveral questions arise Firstthere has apparently already been a lot of public expenditure During UPA-Ithere was a special development package of Rs 20000 crorespread over three years and concentrated on these 33 districts and another 22 contiguous ones Other than specific items (health centresschoolshostelsskill development)this encompassed housing through the Indira Awaas Yojana (IAY)roads through Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)rural electrification through Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY)employment through Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) and telecom through Bharat Nirman Government employees were given additional incentives for working in LWE areas There was also supposed to be splicing with MPLADS Other than drinking water (not explicitly covered)all other development activities proposed now were therefore already supposed to be covered If that public expenditure splurge did not workwhat makes us think the present one will To the extent information is availablethe Planning Commission now has a website on what is happening in these 34 districts on PMGSYNRHM (National Rural Health Mission)SSA (Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan)RGGVYMGNREGS and drinking water This makes for depressing reading and here are just two instances: 072 per cent of habitations in Khammam have been covered under PMGSY7 per cent of BPL households in Kanker have been covered under RGGVY It is a separate matter that this information is dated Information is missing If this new integrated action plan is being worked out by the Planning Commissionas has been reportedwhy cant it work with other ministries and departments to collate information first There has been another report that the Planning Commission will now become a Systems Reforms Commission Perhaps one should begin with 33 or 34 LWE districtshigh on everyones agenda To the extent that states have to offer matching grants on Central schemeswhy have these not been available Why has money available not been spent (utilised) When money is spentwhy has it not led to tangible improvement in outcomes Once upon a timebefore the merger of PWG and MCC in 2004the LWE movement used to work in silos and the merger seems to have increased synergy Why do government ministries and departments continue to work in silos Even more interestinglywhy is there this variation in efficiency of public expenditure across statesand within the same state across districts There is another question that is intellectually interesting and not much research attention seems to have been paid to this Roadselectricity and drinking water are important and so are povertyliteracyfemale work participation ratesetc On an average there is correlation between deprivation on these criteria and presence of LWE extremism Howeverthat is on an average Not every district that is so deprived has LWE violence and not every district that has LWE violence is relatively deprived to the same extent on these economic criteria Thereforein looking at simple correlations with economic backwardness or shares of tribal populationwe may be over-simplifying For instancebeyond economic backwardnessthere may be a sense of social and political marginalisationnon-existence of redress mechanismsbypassing by the law and order machinery Should one therefore have a centralised templateimposed top-down from Delhiand assume it will solve the problem Or should the integrated action plan evolve from belowfrom the level of districts There is no doubt Balaghat needs roads But that does not seem to be the primary issue for Aurangabad Rural electrification is important in Rayagadabut less so in Rohtas Beyond inherent inefficiency in government deliverythere is also a point about acceptability of such public expenditure programmes by LWE groups For exampleis it universally true (across all districts) that LWE groups accept MGNREGSbut resist developmental activities MGNREGS is an intriguing one On an averagethere is positive correlation between existence of LWE activity and larger shares of adult males in the population MGNREGS is known to have reduced out-migrationchiefly of the male variety Has it then also reinforced (instead of reducing) LWE violence The red corridor is also financed by a red economy and this is believed to thrive on 10-15 per cent leviesthe favourites being traders and construction companies If that is the caseroads delivered by private sector construction may be more acceptable than electricity and drinking waterdelivered essentially by the public sector In the former caselinkages presumably already existat least in some districtsperhaps explaining why road construction works better in Andhra than in Maharashtra At the level of researchthere is much we dont know and consequently resort to generalisations While in general development and governance deficits are issueswe need to disaggregate and decentralise plans
