  • P.V. Ramana replies: The Maoist movement is spread across 90 districts in 11 States of the country.

    In Bihar, the Maoists have a presence in 16 districts, of which four districts –– Aurangabad, Gaya, Jamui, Lakhisarai –– are most affected. However, keeping in tune with the over-all trend across the country, Maoist violence in Bihar has been declining over the past few years, notwithstanding minor fluctuations (see table below).
