The Congress on Monday constituted a six-member task force to study of the problem of naxalite violence in various states and submit a report to party president Sonia Gandhi.

Recalling Sonia's announcement at an AICC session in August this year in this regard, party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi said the body would identify factors responsible for the spread of violence and make an assessment of the impact of efforts made by the government to contain it.

The task force, which will have Sashidhar Reddy from Andhra Pradesh as its convener, will make recommendations on policies, plans and programmes for the central and state governments as also for the Congress party.

Dwivedi said that the task force had been asked to submit its report within three months. The memebrs are Ajit Jogi, Gajendra Singh Rajukheri, R C Khuntia, Nikhil Kumar, and Manju Hembrom.
