LWE generally refers to Left Wing Extremism(Naxalism).Bijapur district of Chattisgadh is known to be severely affected by LWE activities resulting in frequent conflicts between security forces and LWE groups transforming entire area into battle field. This badly affects education of children living in such conflict zones. Also there are chances of children getting influenced by LWE propaganda.
