Guwahati, July 18,
Assam government prefers a control room of Border Security Force (BSF) in Dispur with an aim to monitor the Indo-Bangla border area activities from the State capital.
After discussing various border related issues with top BSF officials recently in the city, the State chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal insisted on equipping the control room with modern
technology so that it becomes helpful in monitoring of border fencing works, infiltration and other border issues from Guwahati itself.
“The control room will be a better platform to formulate mechanism to ensure security at the 135 km Mizoram-Cachar frontier areas of Karimganj & Cachar district and also 147 km Assam-Dhubri sector,” said Sonowal. Moreover, he added that the control room would facilitate checking of illegal trading of cattle through riverine areas of Dhubri border.
The participating BSF officials informed that as per direction from the Union home ministry, they have already adopted modern technology for border security including tackling infiltration through 61 km riverine areas under Dhubri district and the process would be completed by September this year.
