Shinde visits marshy area near Sir Creek, promises road

Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde today visited a marshy region, near the disputed Sir Creek, in Kutch and announced that approval for building a concrete road in the region would be given in a week’s time.

Lauding the role of BSF personnel in guarding this difficult terrain, which is prone to infiltration from Pakistan, Shinde assured them that approval for building a concrete road right upto the bank of Harami Nala would be granted in a week’s time.

“Approval for a concrete road right upto 1170 pillar outpost will be given by the government within a week’s time,” Shinde said during a media interaction at Lakhpat.

Presently, manning the region is posing a big challenge to the security forces who have to deploy all terrain vehicles (ATV) for their movement.

He also announced that a Border Out Post (BOP) will come up near the bank of Harami Nala to intensify vigil around the porous marshy region.

Speaking on the announced BOP, IG BSF A K Sinha said, “a proposal for laying 7 km concrete road right upto 1170 pillar outpost from the post number 1175 is there.
