Arunachal CM talks border link with ITBP IG
Connectivity to border areas is a must for easy and faster movement of the defence forces, said Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalikho Pul during a meeting with ITBP IG MS Rawat.
“Suspension bridges and CC footsteps need to be constructed to improve connectivity to border areas. The border porter track should also be maintained for facilitating patrolling,” Pul said.
He added as defence personnel in border areas are living a harsh life, basic amenities like education and healthcare needs should be look into, so that they can bring their families with them. Proper huts should also be built and maintained for them, Pul told Rawat who called on him on Thursday.
Citing strategic importance of the state bordering Myanmar, Pul urged Rawat to set up an ITBP battalion in the eastern zone too.
