Bharat Ratna for Mahendra Krama sign now

Karma, an ethnic adivasi, formed the Salwa Judum, an anti-Naxalite movement led by local elites. Despite being an opposition party member, Karma aggressively lobbied in order to get bipartisan support for the Salwa Judum, and largely succeeded in 2005, when Salwa Judum was adopted by the state government and recruited as a corp of "Special Police Officers". They were given broad latitude in their actions.[1] After the Supreme Court expressed disapproval of the Salwa Judum movement in 2008 and asked the state of Chhattisgarh to implement remedial measures mentioned in the National Human Rights Commission report which had detailed widespread human rights abuses committed by the Salwa Judum, the movement slowly started to disappear from the Chhattisgarh state.[2]

On 8 November 2012, Karma survived an assassination attempt by Naxalite insurgents, when the landmine blast targeting his motorcade as it passed through a forest in Dantewada district failed to kill him. Karma escaped unscathed, while his driver and two security guards were injured.[3]

On 25th May 2013, Mahendra Karma was assassinated in a Maoist attack in Jagdalpur district of Chhattisgarh.
