Amit Shah visits Indo-Nepal border post in Bihar

Amit Shah visits Indo-Nepal border post in Bihar

Fatehpur BOP, Sep 24 (UNI) Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited the Fatehpur BOP on the Indo-Nepal border in Bihar and conducted review of various activities of the border area with Sashastra Seema Bal(SSB).
Shah inaugurated the BOP buildings of Fatehpur, Pektola, Beria, Amgachi and Raniganj at Fatehpur BOP and interacted and had refreshments with personnel there. Shri Shah also visited and offered his prayers at Budhi Kali Mata Temple.
On the occasion of the inauguration of new buildings of five border outposts in different areas of Bihar, the Union Home Minister said the security of the country's borders is ensured by the soldiers of the country's security forces even in difficult situations.
He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi has provided many facilities for the security forces of the country, some of which are being inaugurated today. Shah said the security forces of the country play an important role in maintaining law and order, relief and rescue operations during disasters and conducting fair elections.
The Minister said the Government has been working in a time bound and phased manner to provide residential facilities for security forces personnel deployed along the border, for their families in the last eight years. Under this national program, five buildings are being inaugurated today at a cost of Rs 25 crore.
He said under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the government believes that the personnel of our security forces spend the golden years of their lives in difficult conditions on the borders for the security of the country, and it is the duty of the Government of India to take care of their wellbeing and convenience.
Shah said under this, the residence of Jawans, NCO barracks, outpost in-charge residence, mess, armoury, storage and solar power plant of about 10 kilowatt capacity are being inaugurated today. Along with this, buildings have been constructed on 5 acres of land in Pekatola at a cost of Rs 7.50 crore, in Beriya at a cost of Rs 4.5 crore and in Araria and Raniganj at a cost of about Rs 3.5 crore.
Shah added that the Sashastra Seema Bal has a history and since the policy of one nation and one border security force was adopted by the Government of India from the time of former Prime Minister Late Atal Bihari Vajpayee, since then important responsibility of the security of the open borders of Indo-Nepal and Indo-Bhutan has been given to the Sashastra Seema Bal and this force has fulfilled its responsibility very well.
He said the open borders need to be guarded more tactfully and carefully and SSB has been successful in preventing any kind of illegal activity by doing this work efficiently. He said that in such a situation, our communication with the villages, network of information and our behaviour with villagers through service is important in securing the borders. That is why the slogan of Service, Security and Brotherhood has been given to the Sashastra Seema Bal with great care.
Talking about Left Wing Extremism, he said when it was at its peak in Bihar and Jharkhand, the SSB Jawans have made a huge contribution in the fight against Left Wing Extremism, which the country can never forget. SSB Jawans fought a tough battle against Naxalism and rooted it out in the Eastern region of the country by making supreme sacrifices and as a result of this, today Naxalism in Bihar and Jharkhand is almost on the verge of ending.
He said when the border is open, the use of technology becomes very important. Be it CCTVs or drones, the security of borders should be ensured by adopting a variety of technologies. He said that all the forces should adopt technology by adopting each other's good practices as technology can become a great medium to secure borders.
Shah said all the SSB Jawans are protecting such a huge international border connecting two nations with devotion and patriotism. He said the area under SSB is close to the Siliguri Corridor which is a very sensitive area for our country. We have West Bengal, Sikkim and Assam on one side and on the other side Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh. This whole border area is very sensitive and especially in the the sensitive corridor like Siliguri you have to act more cautiously while performing your duties.
He said after the formation of the government under leadership of Narendra Modi in 2014, no stone has been left unturned in enhancing the infrastructure on the border areas. "Between 2008 and 2014, around Rs 23,700 crore was spent. But after the formation of Government under leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the amount of Rs. 23,700 crore has been increased to Rs 44,600 crore," he said.
