Better border management needed to check infiltration: Bijral

Referring to Centre’s direction to states including Jammu and Kashmir to enforce surveillance to check fresh influx of Rohingays, S.S. Bijral former IGP and BJP State Spokesperson said their influx can only be checked at the entry points itself adding that North Eastern states sharing common border with Myanmar and Bangladesh form their infiltration points. He said malpractices in border management and porous border facilitate their illegal migration as happened in Jammu and Kashmir hugely exploited by Pakistan unleashing terrorism.
Bijral said interstate border surveillance would have to be strengthened to check the infiltration whether in Jammu and Kashmir or in eastern sector. Ethnic violence triggered over alleged rape and murder of a Buddhist girl led to waves of murder and arson forcing Rohingyas to escape by all means possible as Myanmar Army exercised emergency powers. He welcomed Union Government’s move asking Myanmar to take back the Rohingyas.
