The Center has increased the jurisdiction of the Border Security Force (BSF) to check terrorism and cross-border crimes. BSF will now be able to conduct search operations up to 50 km inside Indian territory along the international border with Pakistan and Bangladesh. It will also have the right to arrest suspects and seize suspicious material. For this he will not need to take permission from any administrative officer. On this decision of the Center, the politics has become hot in Punjab, where the BSF had the right to search only up to 15 km earlier.

Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has said that allowing BSF to act like police in the interior areas is against the federal structure of the Constitution. On the other hand, Akali Dal President Sukhbir Singh Badal has alleged the complicity of the Center and the Punjab government in this matter. Badal has said that it is very unlikely that the Center has taken such a big decision without taking the state government into confidence. Channi and her accomplices are now making noise only to hide their complicity.

On the other hand, former Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has welcomed the decision of the Union Home Ministry. They say that our soldiers are being killed in Kashmir. Pak-backed terrorists are sending a huge number of drugs and weapons to Punjab. In such a situation, by increasing the presence and strength of BSF, we will be stronger. Do not drag central security forces into politics.

What is in the new order of the Union Home Ministry?

  • The Ministry of Home Affairs has taken this decision on the basis of the provisions made under Section 139(1) of the BSF Act 1968.
  • It will cover the border areas of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab, West Bengal, Assam, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya, Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
  • In the states of Punjab, West Bengal and Assam, earlier this range was only up to 15 km from the border. Now it has been reduced to 50 km.
  • In Gujarat this range has been reduced from 80 km to 50 km. In Rajasthan, 50 km has been kept as before.
  • In the new order, the jurisdiction has been cut by 20 km in Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya.
