इस कार्यक्रम का उद्देश्य नक्सलवाद से प्रभावित अत्यंत पिछड़े क्षेत्रों में विकास की कमियों को दूर करना है। विकास की कमी के कारण आमतौर पर वहां के लोगों में पराएपन की भावना पैदा हो जाती है। हमारे कार्यक्रम और नीतियां इस प्रकार की होनी चाहिए कि तेजी से विकसित हो रही हमारी अर्थव्यवस्था का लाभ इन लोगों को भी मिले।

हम नक्सली उग्रवाद की परेशानियों को समझते है। इसी को देखते हुए अब हम विशेष बटालियन बना रहे है, जिसमें सुरक्षा और इंजीनियरिंग के विशेष दल होगे और इंजीनियरिंग दल में मेरे विचार से, सेना के सेपर्स और माइनर्स काम करेंगे, जिससे विकास हो सकेगा, लेकिन उन बटालियनों को तैयार करने में वक्त लगेगा।
