HM to review security along Indo-Pak border in Raj tmrw

Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh has stated that border with Pakistan will be completely sealed by December 2018, India media reported.

The minister said the situation on the border would be continuously monitored.

Indian army had carried out surgical strikes on September 29, crossing over the LoC in Kupwara sector in the Kashmir Valley and Poonch in Jammu region and targetting and destroying seven terror launch pads.

Following the Uri attacks, the tension between India and Pakistan have worsened and India is upfront to seal the Indo-Pak border to safeguard the interest of India and the lives of its defense personnel. "We are also looking at technological solutions to man the border", he said. "Shall visit forward areas near the global border and interact with BSF jawans", Singh said in a tweet.

Singh will also visit Murar, BoP in Jaisalmer and asses the situation along the Indo-Pak border. Senior Border Security Force (BSF) officials is also expected to attend the meeting. The HM said the CMs of border states gave suggestions on border security and said the state governments in turn must act on the BSF's suggestions.

It was resolved that the central and state Governments will work together to resolve all problems at the earliest for effectively protecting the border.

Of the 2,289.66 km global border, 2,034.96 km is covered with physical barriers, including fencing.

Another well-reputed publication, The Diplomat, in a piece titled Is India Capable of a Surgical Strike in Pakistan Controlled Kashmir? raised some serious questions about the capabilities of the Indian military.

After the security review meet in Jaisalmer, Rajnath will hold a meeting with BSF officials in Barmer on 8 October, according to the Barmer Collector Sudhir Sharma.
