A Border Security Force official informed media in Agartala on the condition of anonymity saying, “There is no input or reports of any possible disturbances and negativity along the India-Bangladesh border. However, in view of the development in the western frontiers, BSF battalions deployed have been asked to remain alert round-the-clock. Our senior officials and battalion commandants are closely monitoring the situation.”

Mizoram Chief Secretary Lalnunmawia Chuaungo said: “Assam Rifles troopers accompanied by Army personnel were carrying out professional exercises along the state’s border with Myanmar”. The northeastern states share a total 9926.7 km border (including riverine frontiers) with Bangladesh, China, Myanmar, and Bhutan.

“Security has been improved along the country’s borders with Bangladesh in Tripura and Myanmar in Mizoram, although there were no immediate reports of any disturbances”, a paramilitary official said.

As per the media reports, “the Chief Secretary on behalf of the Mizoram government in separate letters to the Defence and Home Ministries complained about the deployment of additional forces in the border villages adjoining India-Myanmar border in the pretext of routine exercises without informing the state government and this is against the standard practice”.

Meanwhile, People’s Representation for Identity and Status of Mizoram (PRISM) also wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the National Human Rights Commission asking clarification on the existing military build-up in Lawngtlai district.
