Reconsider Unilateral Move to Extend BSF Jurisdiction


The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on October 16, 2021) condemning the central government’s decision to extend the jurisdiction of the Border Security Force (BSF):


The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India condemns the decision of the central government to extend the jurisdiction of the Border Security Force (BSF) up to 50 kilometres from the international borders in Punjab, West Bengal and Assam from the existing 15 kilometres. The unilateral decision of the central government is a blatant violation of the federal principle of governance.


The Party wants the government to reconsider the decision and consult the concerned state governments before taking such a decision.
