Governor Radda emphasized that poverty is a significant factor driving the surge in banditry across the country. He dispelled the notion that political motives solely fuel banditry, stressing that economic deprivation plays a pivotal role.

He expressed concern over the commercialization of banditry, noting its transformation into a lucrative business venture involving criminals, government officials, and security personnel.

He highlighted the complexities involved in negotiating with various bandit camps and emphasized the need for a comprehensive approach to address the root causes of insecurity.
