GWALIOR: Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said that the country's borders will be sealed.

Rajnath said this while taking part in the passing out parade of the Border Security Force (BSF) at Tekanpur in Gwalior district. 

"The BSF is discharging its responsibilities in protecting the nation's borders properly. That's why, the trust and belief of the people towards BSF have increased," the Home Minister told reporters. 

Responding to a question, Rajnath said: "The borders would be sealed. Fencing would be done wherever it's possible and in case it's not, technology would be brought into application."

Speaking on the increasing Maoist incidents, the Home Minister said: "These incidents have decreased 50-55 per cent in the last 2-3 years. Previously, 135 districts were Maoist infested, which has come down to 35 now."

"The state governments are tackling the situation (Maoist incidents) and the central government is providing complete assistance," he added.
