1000 Light Poles At The Gujarat-Pakistan Border Fence Not Working

Our Indian Street lights have a way of working on their own. Complaining about their working at nights and in the evening hours, we often find it amusing. But what if our Border security has the same problem we are facing? The Gujarat-Pakistan Border has a wide strong barbed fence. This fence is fully electrified, but unfortunately, the lights on the poles are not working. It would be left dark at night with torches in the soldiers' hands.

Pakistan and India share an approximate 3,323km of the border. Four States share the border with the Pakistan nation. Jammu & Kashmir 1225 km (includes the 740km Line of Control), Rajasthan 1037 km, Punjab 553 km, and Gujarat 508 km.

Along the Gujarat-Pakistan's Bhuj and Gandhinagar Sector of the international border, there are about 2,061 Border Fencing Light Poles. Out of which only 616 Light Poles are "Functioning". The Border Security Force has told the CPWD Body, in an inter-departmental co-ordination meeting in November.

The minutes of the above meeting had other details of repairs and functional aspects of the border equipment. BSF also mentioned that, out of the 82 Diesel Gensets, only 38 are in a "Functioning State". They are working in such a condition that they are, "affecting operational duties", as said by the BSF Authorities.

The Inter-departmental Co-ordination meeting was held at the Headquarters of the Border Security Force, in New Delhi. During which the senior officers of both the BSF and the CPWD, which is the government's largest construction agency were present. It is then when they have discussed openly several security issues and several projects.

BSF Director General Rajni Kant Mishra and the Central Public Works Department DG Prabhakar Singh have also honoured the meeting by attending it. After the meeting ended, the minutes of the meeting were thus reprised and sent to the CPWD by the BSF in the month of December.

The minutes also state, "CPWD (was) requested to carry out the necessary repair at the earliest as it is affecting operational duties performed by the troops deployed on the sensitive international border". This is a serious security issue as there have been several infiltration attempts made by the subversives who cut the border fences to enter India.

In the state of Jammu, out of the sanctioned 28 Command Posts, only 3 have been constructed and 17 are still under construction. This showing a "very slow progress", still having eight of them unattended and not started yet. Also, out of the 43 High-mast Lights, only 25 have been completed, with 3 under construction and 15 not started yet.

Urging the responsible authorities to speed up the work for security purposes, the BSF has forwarded the words and requests to the CPWD on December 12th. Work has started and is expected to finish soon.
