SRINGERI: The Government will establish three more police stations in naxal-affected areas, said State Home Minister M P Prakash.

Speaking to this paper at Sringeri Mutt he said, “We will spend Rs 5 crore to improve police infrastructure in these areas.”

We should handle the situation carefully and make efforts to bring them back to the mainstream, he said.

A clear picture of the Chamundeshwari bypoll will emerge only by the end of this month, he said.

He expressed confidence that the JD (S) would win the byelections.

The result would not affect the future of the coalition the government, Prakash said.

Our government is running smoothly and small differences are natural, he added.

Principal Secretary of Agriculture Ramaswamy accompanied the Minister.
