Addressing the northeast chief ministers’ meet here, he said the committee, headed by security expert R.N. Ravi, has already reviewed the situation and is expected to submit its report soon.

The minister said: “We should not ignore the border population. There are 240 villages with over two lakh population within 10 km of the India-Myanmar border.”

“This large population is without any security cover. They are at the mercy of insurgents. Similar situation prevails along the India-Bhutan border,” he added.
