India to fence border with Myanmar border, says Amit Shah as work starts in Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur

    The Free Movement Regime is essentially coming to an end as India is fencing the whole length of its shared border with Myanmar. Home Minister Amit Shah announced the development on Tuesday in response to the Meitei groups located in the Imphal Valley’s continuous demands.

    Since the military takeover of Myanmar in 2021, thousands of anti-Junta insurgents have fled to India, and it is also thought that tribal militants cross the porous border into India.

    “The Modi government is committed to building impenetrable borders. It has decided to construct a fence along the entire 1643-kilometer-long Indo-Myanmar border. To facilitate better surveillance, a patrol track along the border will also be paved,” Amit Shah said in a statement on social media platform X.

    “Out of the total border length, a 10 km stretch in Moreh, Manipur, has already been fenced. Furthermore, two pilot projects of fencing through a Hybrid Surveillance System (HSS) are under execution. They will fence a stretch of 1 km each in Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur. Additionally, fence works covering approx 20 km in Manipur have also been approved, and the work will start soon,” Amit Shah added.
