BSF should take action against smuggling of cattle : Home Minister

Inida Bangladesh Border -TeCake-

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on 49th RPT pointed BSF personnel about their carelessness as according to sources, cattle especially cows are smuggled on a large scale near India-Bangladesh border. He delivered strict orders to BSF personnel to give required attention to it.
“You (BSF) have to work on many frontiers. You have to strive to stop illegal infiltration from Bangladesh, deal with narcotics, fake currency notes being smuggled from this border. I want to tell BSF jawans and officers that you should stop the smuggling of cows (at this border) at any cost and if you are doing that already I compliment you for that,” stated in his speech on 49th Raising Day Celebration.
RSS and its affiliated associations too raised their voice against cows being smuggled and getting slaughtered in other countries. Rajnath too pointed Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) Director General Maj Gen Aziz Ahmed, who was also present in the meet and advised him to take actions against this issue.
Though India shares 4,096 km of border with Bangladesh, which is well guarded by Border Security Force and BGB on another side. It is well known that this area has been notorious from a long time for illegal migration, smuggling of cattle, weapons, narcotics and especially fake Indian currency which is affecting our economic conditions.
The Home Minister too admonished neighbouring countries when he was asked to remark about the terror groups that are prevailing like ISIS and threatening activities happening on the eastern flank like Burdwan blasts.
“A threat is threat. I think even in our neighbouring countries anywhere when these terrorist organisations raise their heads then definitely all neighbouring countries should take precautions because no one can remain untouched (by their activities),” Rajnath Singh stated after the event.
He added that Indian government has come up with many plans to check and stop such militant activities. He even unleashed the measures discussed in a conference of the top police brass of the country held in Guwahati. He pointed the state government when he was questioned about the security of public rallies of BJP President Amit Shah in West Bengal. He reminded the press about the duty and responsibility of state government.
Although Rajnath Singh pointed the carelessness of BSF, he also admired them and lauded the role BSF played during 1971 Indo-Pak war and called them as one of the finest defences India has.
“Our BSF jawans are most concerned about ‘Rashtriya Swabhiman’. People of India are by and large peaceful by nature but if anyone dares to challenge our sense of pride BSF will give a befitting reply.”
