Shillong: The Coordination Committee on International Border (CCIB) has strongly opposed the proposed border fencing without proper demarcation of the boundary.

While referring to the statement of Border Management Secretary AE Ahmed on the Centre intention to construct fencing through the zero line along the international boundary, CCIB member Hamlet Dohling said that it was not acceptable since it would be difficult to establish the zero line without proper demarcation of the boundary.

“We want a fresh survey of the border before the boundary fencing commences,” Dohling told reporters here on Wednesday, adding that residents of villages situated along the international border were also in favour of a fresh border survey. The CCIB leader also expressed discontentment over the Central Government proposal to construct the border fence 150 yards from the zero line.

Meanwhile, Dohling also questioned the Government inaction on the report submitted by the Coordination Committee on International Border Fencing (CCIBF) headed by former Deputy Chief Minister Dr Donkupar Roy during the regime of the previous MDA Government.

Dohling also said that the CCIB was opposed to the proposed joint survey by the Revenue department officials and BSF to demarcate the boundary to pave way for fencing along the international border.
