Mankachar: The All India United Democratic Front(AIUDF), MP representing the Dhubri Lok Sabha seat and perfume baron, Maulana Badruddin Ajmal on July 30th, 2019 took stock of the breached India-Bangladesh border fencing in the Mankachar census town and assured to take up the issue with the Home Ministry stating it to be a ‘threat to national security’.
“The breached international border is serious and might pose threat to the national security. Will take up the issue with the Home Ministry,” said Ajmal while interacting with the BSF jawans deployed here at the border.
It may be mentioned that the devastating deluge in Assam washed away a vast stretch of a road along with a portion of the barbed wire fencing along the porous Indo-Bangla International Border (IB) at the Asmer-Alga area in South-Salmara Mankachar district of Assam on July 15th, 2019.
While mentioning about the affected areas of Kalair Alga, Malir Alga and Asmer Alga, the Dhubri MP questioned the BSF if it is possible to conquer the neighbouring country.
On July 24th, 2019, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal also visited the Asmer Alga BOP in South Salmara-Mankachar district along the Indo-Bangladesh border and inspected the site of breached border fencing due to floods and directed speedy repairs for the continuation of efficient patrolling.
The Bangladesh–India border is an international border running between Bangladesh and India that demarcates the eight divisions of Bangladesh and the Indian states.
