The limited impact of these initiatives has been pointed out by numerous police officials35 and is characterised by one respondent as mere ‘plastic surgery’ of the security machinery.36 The second ramification of this strategic veto by Naxals is the diversion of public funds to security functions, which, if deployed in other areas, may have created greater institutional capacity.
