New Delhi: Despite increased hostility with Pakistani, particularly in the wake of death sentence being awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav, the government has ruled out any possibility of constructing a protective boundary wall along the Indo-Pak border.

Even minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju informed Parliament on Wednesday that there was no proposal with the government to construct a wall along the Pakistan border. However, the Centre has been working on an ambitious plan to completely seal the border with Pakistan by the end of next year. The move was initiated after a committee headed by former home secretary Madhukar Gupta submitted a detailed report to the home ministry last year. The committee was constituted after the attack on Pathankot Air Force base. Home minister Rajnath Singh too has discussed the issue with border states like Punjab, Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan and Gujarat, as Centre and states would work on the project.
