The incidents of Maoist violence have come down by 54 per cent in the country, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Friday. It was his government's desire to bring an end to Naxalism, militancy and terrorism, he said.

"There is no place for violence in a developed society and it is my desire to see that instances of Naxalism, militancy and terrorism are brought to an end in this country," he said, while addressing police officials here.

He was speaking at the regional training centre of the 'Greyhounds,' the special anti-Naxal operations force of Telangana State and Andhra Pradesh located on the outskirts of the city.

Singh said the Maoists’ morale at present is at its lowest and the incidents of Naxal violence have come down by 54 per cent in the various Left Wing Extremism hit states of the country.

The Home Minister lauded the courage and valour of the security forces personnel including the 'Greyhounds' as he added that the onus to keep India safe and independent rested on the shoulders of these men and women.

Singh was on a day-long visit to the State capital during which he also visited the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, the alma mater of Indian Police Service (IPS) officers.
