Thereafter the people of the jungle mahal in general were called to challange and to put up a bold front against the Maoists through postering and leafleting.

The new policy of the goverment to arrange for employment of youths in Home Guard, NVF, Junior constable etc. were widely circulated. On the other hand the Maoist organization called for boycotting the police and it was declared by them that policy is vague and the Maoist organization threatened that if anybody joins police, he would be killed. Braving the constant threat of the Maoist organization, a huge number of youths (eligible candidates) of jungle mahal area applied for recruitment in Home Guard, NVF and Junior constable.
