Nityanand Rai, the Union Minister of State for Home stated in Lok Sabha that the central government has issued an advisory to Border Security Force and Assam Rifles to maintain strict vigilance and surveillance and to take all possible steps for preventing illegal infiltration at international borders especially from Myanmar.

The Centre said that there are reports about the influx of Myanmar nationals into the Indian territory through the India-Myanmar border due to the internal disturbances due to the coup in Myanmar. However, he denied the reports that the Mizoram government has decided to give them work under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS).

When asked if the Mizoram government has decided to give work under MGNREGS to those Myanmar nationals who had recently entered into India, Rai said, “As per the information received from the state government of Mizoram, no such decision has been taken”.
