KOHIMA, June 3 - The fencing of the India-Bangladesh border would be completed by this year-end and not a single individual will be allowed to illegally cross either side, Union Minister for Law and Justice DV Sadananda Gowda said today.
Interacting with reporters at Raj Bhavan here, Gowda said, �A major initiative has been taken since the last six and a half decades in fencing the border, even to the extent of constitutional amendment being made on both sides.�
The Union Minister is in the State since yesterday in connection with the second anniversary celebration of the BJP-led NDA Government.
He said the fencing would be completed by the end of December this year to plug any illegal infiltration and immigration on either side without proper passport in future. �Bangladesh infiltration will be stopped within a very short period,� he said.
Maintaining that safety and security of the country has been the prime concern of the government, he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi held the vision that the boundaries across the country, be it with China, Pakistan or Bangladesh should be properly fenced.
