Naxalite movement in India

Altogether more than 80000 security forces are deployed to recapture Naxalite areas including their jungle bases in Mard. Indian government has ordered number of sophisticated UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) from U.S to spearhead the operation.

After nearly three weeks of fighting Indian security managed to occupy only half of the villages. Home minister has banned Communist Party (Maoist) and called Naxalites as the biggest threat to Indian State. During the recent elections , Naxalites called for a boycott and this was successful in number of Eastern and Central states. Who are naxalites and how did such a movement end up controlling nearly 25% of districts in India.
