Indo-Bangla border lined 80 % plain fertile lands went to Bangladesh during fencing

AGARTALA, Feb 22 (TIWN): The border fencing work which has taken place after Home Minister Rajnath Singh instructed the state to finish the incomplete border fencing work across the state, revealed that due to improper land re-demarcation many plain areas have gone to the neighboring Bangladesh, which have been cultivated by Indian till day. The allegation has brought by Tripura BJP Vice President Subal Bhowmik alleging the then Prime Jawharlal Nehru for signing wrong land demarcation.

On the other hand, Tripura PWD Minister Badal Choudhury is fighting for Muhuri Char accusing Modi Govt for doing wrong demarcation. But when Badal Choudhury raised voice already the demarcation was finished in the presence of Tripura Govt Officials. However, political blame game has been continued in this regard.

Tripura’s 85 % people were dependent upon agriculture but with the passage of time now people’s interest in agriculture have been declined. With the pain fertile lands’ losing Tripura’s agro-based economy would down more.

BJP VP Subal Bhowmik said, “Tripura’s 856 KM border area had many fertile lands and during fencing it was said that people will be allow to go to the opposite side of the border even after the fencing is done. But now the scenario is opposite and Tripura has lost those lands.

However, as a part of securing NE region from any kind of terror attacks, the Home Minister announce to seal the border within 2017, December.

India has some 4096 kms long border with Bangladesh and Tripura, which is surrounded on three sides by that nation, has 856 kms long border. Fencing work is going on throughout the Indo-Bangladesh border.

Very often the implementing authorities of Border fencing in Tripura and the victimized people of bordering area come to blows to have their duties and rights respectively. People living beyond 150 yards demand either rehabilitation or fencing near zero point along the border according to the relaxation of Indra-Mojib international agreement 1972. As the government cannot fulfil their demands, each and every effort of Border fencing ended in violence since the last decade.
