Kamalanagar Nov 22: The Mizoram State Boundary Committee, which was formed in March this year to look into cases of boundary disputes along the boundary of the State, concluded their three day visit of Indo-Bangla Border Fencing in Borapansury area of Chakma Autonomous District Council. The Committee led by Pu C. Chawngkunga, former Minister arrived Kamalanagar on 20th Nov. with the other members of the Committee Pu Lalduhawma, MLA and Leader of Opposition, Retired Wing Commander Lalnghinglova, Pu R L Rindika and Lalrinzuala.
While speaking to Pu Lalduhama he said their visit has a reference to the ongoing border fencing along Indo-Bangla Border in CADC. Mizoram has a boundary with Bangladesh of about 318 KM. Since the time, fencing work started in 2005, while the MNF were in power, issues regarding the violation of guidelines by the construction agencies were raised time and again and whereas no heed was paid then he said, because of which today at many places the fencing has been constructed beyond 150 yards from zero line causing unnecessary loss of land. While saying that the Committee’s power is limited to the role of making of recommendation, he expressed his hope that the issue would be looked into.
He also spoke strongly for the families affected by the fencing, with 15 villages falling outside the fencing and cutting across 21 villages. He strongly felt that the villagers should not budge from their places until and unless arrangement for adequate compensation is made available. As is told by him, even within Borapansury area houses lying outside the fencing were seen which he termed as inhuman to put someone in forced isolation.
