Today is the Raising Day of Border Security Force. A program has been organized in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan on the 57th Raising Day of BSF. Home Minister Amit Shah has also reached here to attend this program. During this, he said that for the first time after the establishment of BSF, it has been decided to celebrate this ceremony in the district bordering the country. This tradition should be continued.
The Union Minister said that more than 35,000 jawans of the country's police force, BSF and CAPF have sacrificed their lives at different places. He further said, I am proud that BSF is a leader in this. On behalf of the country, I pay tribute to all the soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice. Today the world's largest border guarding force is the BSF.
Shah said, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has always been sensitive to the guards of the borders. The Modi government has provided complete health cover to the family members of the armed forces, under which the families can easily take advantage of it through a card.
For the central government under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, security of borders means security of the nation, he said. You are protecting the borders, you are doing the job of securing the whole country. The latest technology available in the world will be made available to the Border Security Force. The central government is committed to this. The work of recruiting 50,000 jawans in the force has been completed. We will try our best to increase the number of vacancies.
The Union Minister said, since 2014, the security of the country's borders has been taken seriously by the Government of India. Wherever there is an attempt to encroach on the border, we have retaliated immediately. No one can take our border and our soldiers lightly, India has given this message.
