Indo-Bangla border to be sealed by Dec

NEW DELHI: Come December. A porous Indo-Bangladesh border would be a thing of the past if Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal is to be believed.

The Assam Chief Minister said it after he met Union home minister Rajnath Singh in New Delhi on Tuesday. Talking to reporters, Sonowal said he had a detailed discussion with Singh who assured him of full support and cooperation to completely seal the Indo-Bangla border by December this year.

"Normalcy prevails after the publication of the first NRC draft. We hope same normalcy would be there when RGI would publish the second NRC draft," said Sonowal.

The chief minister minister further called on finance minister Arun Jaitley and his commerce counterpart Suresh Prabhu in the afternoon.
