Agartala, September 25 (TIWN): Work for barbed wire fencing along the Indo-Bangla international border couldn’t be taken up in the Tripura frontiers in a total of 25 Km patch including several segments. Work couldn’t be initiated in most of the areas due to objections from the Bangladesh Border Guards (BGB), official sources said.

A highly placed source in the state government today said that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had sanctioned barbed wire fencing with Bangladesh along 816.95 km in the Tripura-Bangla frontiers. Work in a total of 695 Km out of the sanctioned length was completed in which 12 Km was done through single row fencing due to local objections.

Work couldn’t, however, be taken up in approximately 25 Km including different components of objection forms.

Out of this, 0.26 Km experienced local objections, 250 metre had all barbed wire fencing works stalled due to local issues, the BGB raised objections in a whopping 4.98 Km.

The barbed wire fence construction agencies failed to erect fence in 20 Km length due to administrative reasons.

Among the ongoing works, around 66 Km work is currently underway in double row pattern at Dhalai district, 0.92 Km is undergoing single row fencing.

All fencing works were learnt to have been temporarily held up in February due to agency issues.
