Raipur ( | Puvarti and its nearby villages, which come under Jagargunda police station, were considered a Maoist stronghold in Dandakaranya. The Puvarti village is the native village of Hidma, the top commander of the Maoists, and PLGA battalion commander Deva. These areas served as hubs for Naxalite activities and have been deprived of development work and basic facilities due to the Naxalite menace.

Under the leadership of Chief Minister Shri Vishnu Deo Sai, the state government has intensified its efforts to foster development and eradicate naxalism in the Naxal-affected areas. The armed forces have established 14 new security camps in Naxalite-affected areas. A security camp, jointly operated by the CRPF, STF, Cobra, DRG, Bastar Fighter, and local police, was set up in the Puvarti of Jagargunda police station on February 16. The camp aims to provide security and essential amenities to the locals. Following the security camp’s establishment in Puvarti, a health camp was organised and an appeal was made to villagers to undergo health check-ups. Notably, Hidma’s mother and Deva’s mothers also underwent health check-ups.
