The government is reportedly seeking help from missionary groups, including the Church, in conducting development work in areas plagued by Maoist insurgencies.

“We have asked Caritas, which is already involved in development activities to spearhead the work in Maoist-controlled areas of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Orissa states,” press reports quoted Federal Rural Development Minister Jairam Ramesh as saying in a letter he wrote to Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh.

Ramesh said Caritas was a social organization and should not be seen as a religious entity.
