In Chhattisgarh State, the several decade long conflict between a small armed Maoist group and the government has worsened. 

Naxalite does not represent the majority of Maoist in India.

The group says it will use violence to block the countries national election, according to Reuters. Naxilite wants to redistribute the wealth of landowners and oppose industrialization.

The Observer says,  578 civilians have died in Naxal-related violence in the past two years.

In 2005, another armed group emerged and began engaging in conflict with the Naxalite.
