New Delhi, Feb 6 (UNI) Stating that building impenetrable borders is a commitment by the Narendra Modi-led government, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Tuesday that the entire 1643-kilometre-long Indo-Myanmar border will be fenced.

He said that to facilitate better surveillance, a patrol track along the border will also be paved.

The Home Minister added, “Out of the total border length, a 10-kilometre stretch in Moreh, Manipur, has already been fenced.”
