After Rajasthan CM’s Visit to Jaiselmer, Rajnath Singh Minister of Home Affairs, Observed Strict Measures to Counter Pak’s Insolence. Are We Prepared to Retort Against Pak?
In the wake of consistent infiltration, terrorism and ceasefire violations by Pakistan, BJP Government hit back in a ‘no nonsense’ tone this time. Yesterday, CM Vasundhara Raje offered her prayers at the famous Tanot Mata Mandir to gear up spiritual defence against Pak. And today, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited ‘Golden City’ for a top-secret 2-day meeting with military forces, amidst heightened tension along the border. Seeing these elaborate preparations, it seems the Government will leave no stone unturned in terms of national security this time.
Pakistan’s Weak Attempts to Threaten India in Last Few Days
- With technical surveillance and use of advanced illuminators, Indian army successfully managed to foil three major infiltration bids by Pak- one in Rampur and the other one in Naugam region along LoC.
- As reported by National Security Advisor Ajit Doval on Wednesday, Pakistan had attempted to push 100 terrorists across the LoC to attack on Jammu and Kashmir.
- In a meeting headed by PM Modi, it was revealed that an organized group of Pakistani terrorists was planning to attack Indian defence personnel, hence the recent surgical strikes by India.
- In past one month, Pak had attempted to send terrorists across borders under the guise of migrants. There have been reports of fake currency note circulation, human trafficking and trans-border smuggling of narcotics and arms, as well.
Rajnath Singh Visits Rajasthan to Strengthen Border Security
Following Pakistan’s failed attempt to cross border from PoK on Thursday, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh arrived in Jaiselmer with the intention of monitoring security measures. Today, he chaired a meeting with BSF officials, CMs, home secretaries, deputy generals of police and state home ministers of Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan, Punjab and Gujarat. Moreover, he’ll be visiting Barmer and other neighbouring districts to meet with the soldiers appointed there.
Quick Outcomes of This Meeting
Home Minister was quick to take major decisions regarding this matter. As per the outcomes of this meeting,
- The entire stretch of Indo-Pak Border (3,323 km long) will be sealed by December 2018.
- 66 km of the border area under operational control of Home Ministry includes physical barriers and fencing. It’ll be strengthened to prevent future infiltrations.
- The remaining 254.80 km border is occupied by riverine, marshes and creeks. Since it isn’t possible to set up physical barriers there, home ministry shall deploy satellite technology to affirm it.
- Sensors, lasers, radars and cameras will be installed in border areas. Additionally, paramilitary forces will test CIBMS (Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System) in IPB (Indo-Pak Border) and BSF will try out pilot projects in Jammu region to maximize security.
- Issues concerning border areas and outposts in Murar, Jaisalmer and Barmer will be resolved within two-day deliberations.
- A special BSG (Border Security Grid) will be formed in collaboration with the stakeholders of the four states. This group shall conduct security review of the surrounding regions to lay out the framework of border security plan.
Home Minister appreciated the Indian Armed Forces for their dedication and valour. According to Rajnath, ‘The way a farmer guards his farms, Indian soldiers are vigilant and guarding the borders.‘ The Ministry of Home Affairs expressed their gratitude towards soldiers and promised to safeguard the nation against threats.
Firm steps and decisions like this are going to resolve terrorism issue for India. Seeing all these preparations, it’s safe to say that India is prepared to wreck mayhem on those, who threaten its peace. Not just empty words, it’s tough action now; India will strike back!
