Security of India’s borders was among the key topics of discussion at the three-day annual security conference in Jaipur which concluded on Sunday.

The topics discussed include the “sensitive and unpredictable” ground situation along the China frontier in Ladakh, infiltration across the borders from Pakistan and Bangladesh, terrorist activities and trafficking of narcotics through drones.

Sources in the security establishment said the situation along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh along with the Chinese army’s “brazen” aggression and deployment were extensively deliberated during the closed-door meeting, which was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah. Pakistan-sponsored cross-border terrorism, cyber-threats, Naxal violence and narcotics smuggling were also discussed in detail.

India had lost access to 26 out of 65 patrolling points (PP) in eastern Ladakh since the Chinese ingress in May 2020.

“The situation along the China frontier is very sensitive and unpredictable. Security officials from Ladakh expressed concern over the massive deployment by the Chinese army along the LAC and also flagged their brazen aggression,” said an intelligence bureau official.

At the conference, the Prime Minister urged officials to “stay in border villages to establish better contact with local populace as these border villages were the first villages of India”.

Modi also said the new criminal laws were a paradigm shift in the criminal justice system and that the Indian police should transform itself into a modern and world-class force to realise the vision of developed India by 2047. He also advised the police chiefs to use social media at the police station level to disseminate positive information and messages for the benefit of citizens.
