People living on the Indochina border should not migrate, said Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Addressing the villagers and Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) troops in the first battalion camp here, Singh said the border population should be more important as the government has “full faith and confidence” in people who live in these remote areas.
People living along China’s border were the country’s “strategic assets”, and directed the ITBP border security force to ensure that they did not emigrate, as this would endanger the safety of India.
“People living along the border between India and China should not migrate at any price, they are our strategic assets, they should be given more importance … The day they will migrate … that will not be good for our security border, “he said. The Interior Minister said that the border population occupied an important place in the hearts of the government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
