Acknowledging their duty, the Home Minister had said that the SSB has the toughest duty to perform because of the open border with Nepal and Bhutan.
"Sitting in Delhi, one thinks you have the easiest duty as we've friendly relations with both nations (Nepal and Bhutan). But when one comes to the border, we realise that you have the toughest duty as it's an open border," he had said.
"The responsibility increases if it's an open border. However friendly may the relations be, even if the neighbouring nations have no ill intentions, there are a few elements in society who use open borders for unauthorised earning - be it smuggling, animal smuggling or infiltration," the Minister had added.
Shah had also offered prayers at Budhi Kali Mata Temple at Subhashpally Chowk of Kishanganj.
Meanwhile, speaking on Nitish Kumar, Shah on Friday addressed the 'Jan Bhavna Mahasabha' rally and said that the people of the state will "wipe out the Lalu-Nitish duo" in the 2024 general elections and the party will come to power in the state in 2025.
Addressing the 'Jana Bhavna Mahasabha' in Bihar's Purnea, Shah had said, "In 2014, you (Bihar CM Nitish Kumar) only had two Lok Sabha seats, 'naa ghar ke rahe the, naa ghaat ke'. Let the 2024 LS elections come, the Bihar public will wipe out the Lalu-Nitish duo. We're, with a full majority, going to come to power here in 2025 polls".
Shah had further said that Nitish Kumar does not favour any political ideology, and can join hands with any party to stay in power.
"Nitish Kumar is not in favour of any political ideology. Nitish ji can leave socialism and go with Lalu ji also, can do casteist politics. Nitish ji can leave socialism and sit with the Left, Congress. He may also leave RJD and join BJP. Nitish has only one policy - my chair should remain intact," he had said. The Home Minister had said that the danger of "'Jungle-raj' is looming over Bihar". (ANI)
