India has no plans to construct a wall along its border with Pakistan, minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju informed Rajya Sabha on Wednesday.

"There was no proposal with the government of India to build a wall along the Pakistan border," Rijiju said replying a written question. 

The minister said the government has adopted a multi-pronged approach for security arrangements at the Indo-Pak border. 

"The arrangements include deployment of BSF, construction of border fence, construction of border roads, installation of floodlights, construction of BOPs, introduction of hi-tech surveillance equipment, providing weapons and specialised vehicles to security forces," he said.
