NEW DELHI:  India’s border districts are often the most backward—more prone to sociological changes than development. These areas often share cultural relations with the people across the border and fall prey to drug-smuggling from Pakistan.

The party had earlier asked BSF to conduct the study on socio-economic situation in the districts.

A BJP think-tank has tied up with the Border Security Force (BSF) to study the socio-economic changes along the border, which would help in making policies.

“As the BSF said they do not have a research wing, the Public Policy Research Centre (PPRC) entered into an arrangement with them,” a source said, adding as the force has presence all along the border, it had access to areas which other agencies did not have.

The PPRC, helmed by BJP vice president Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, has already deputed its researcher to record the changes in areas along the over 1,000 km long India-Pakistan border.

As demographic changes have been a cause of concern for the BJP and Sangh, they have been raising concerns and want to see if the situation can be mitigated.  RSS had last month held its annual meeting at Naguar, Rajasthan. With the BJP government in the state, the party is looking at how the policy level changes can be drafted for better governance.

The study would look at the social-political changes and recommend policy changes in terms of infrastructure and schemes which then would be sent to the state and central government.
