Best wishes from the Indian side

UMN and its partner Chandra Mukhi Club (CMC) have been working together to improve border security in Sunsari for quite some time. Their work has been much appreciated on both sides of the border.

Last week, UMN, CMC and the Local Peace Committee members visited the Sasastra Seema Bal (SSB) headquarters in Bathnaha, India. We were invited to the Silver Jubilee of the Cultural Zonal Centre, an event attended by about 5000 people.

The visit was very fruitful. The SSB chief, Mr. AKC Singh chaired the programme, and welcomed us with a bunch of flowers and khaada in the VIP section. From the stage, Mr  Singh said: “We are very pleased be working with you, UMN and Chandra Mukhi Club, on our border security movement.”

He added that he was really glad to see the news regarding the issue of border security in UMN’s Annual Report, 2010-2011. He gave best wishes for effective and successful programmes run by UMN in Nepal. He also introduced us to key people on the Indian side. During the program, time was also given to Chandra Mukhi Club to deliver a message.

This collaboration with SSB’s headquarters in Bathnaa has seen very positive impacts in border area security. Inspired by this, SSB headquarters in Birpur (the next border area) also expressed their interest in co-ordinating with UMN. We have been invited to Birpur, for a similar programme in Bathnaha later in February.
