"The Home Minister's visit is of considerable significance due to various reasons. First and foremost is the issue of illegal immigration [that] is still going on, therefore there is an urgent need to strengthen the border police. Apart from this, the smuggling of drugs and arms is to be curbed," P. K. Mishra, former additional director of the BSF, told Sputnik.
