CM Biren hails scrapping of FMR as historic decision

Date:

EKHON|UKHRUL: Manipur CM Biren Singh has seemingly welcomed the Centre’s decision to scrap the Free Movement Regime (FMR) between India and Myanmar. Taking to his social media platform X account, CM Biren hailed the move as historic decision. He posted, “Immensely grateful to Hon’ble PM Shri @narendramodi Ji and Hon’ble HM Shri @AmitShah Ji for their commitment to securing our borders. The decision to scrap the Free Movement Regime (FMR) between India and Myanmar, as recommended by @HMOIndia is crucial for our internal security and the demographic integrity of our North Eastern States.”

“This is yet another historic decision in curbing illegal immigration and strengthening our internal security after the recent announcement to fence the 1643 Km Indo-Myanmar border by Government of India,” he added.

The Centre’s decision will especially affect the Nagas who share border across the country in Myanmar and likely to create dissension from the community.

According to the Press Information Bureau, New Delhi earlier today it said, “Ministry for Home Affairs (MHA) has decided to scrap Free Movement Regime (FMR) between India and Myanmar to ensure the internal security of the country and maintain the demographic structure of India’s North Eastern States bordering Myanmar.

It is Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s resolve to secure our borders said Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah.

“Since the Ministry of External Affairs is currently in the process of scrapping it, MHA has recommended the immediate suspension of the FMR.”

Union Home Minister and Minister of Cooperation, Amit Shah in his post on ‘X’ said that “It is Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji’s resolve to secure our borders, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has decided that the Free Movement Regime (FMR) between India and Myanmar be scrapped to ensure the internal security of the country and to maintain the demographic structure of India’s North Eastern States bordering Myanmar. Since the Ministry of External Affairs is currently in the process of scrapping it, MHA has recommended the immediate suspension of the FMR.”
