Bajwa for village volunteers’ force to check terror

Gurdaspur, March 20

Congress MP Pratap Singh Bajwa today suggested creation of a village volunteers’ force, comprising youth from villages along the International Border in Punjab, to provide a third line of defence to check terror activities.

He raised the matter of terror attacks, including the one at the Pathankot Air Base in the Rajya Sabha. “The stretch of Pathankot-Jammu NH-44 has come to be known as a ‘highway of terror’,” Bajwa said.

“Unemployed youth in the age group of 18 to 40 years and living in 1,000 border villages could be provided training by the Border Security Force or the Army. They can act as a third line of defence after the BSF and the Punjab Police,” he said during the Zero Hour. — TNS
