However, construction of Border fencing between BP 79 to 76 Haolenphai remained suspended since then after the Myanmar government raised objections against the construction of border fencing, claiming that its territory had been encroached.

Recently, the BRTF had started the construction of border fencing between BP-80 Govajang and BP-81 Kwatha Khunou and L Molphei areas. However, CSOs led by UCM protested against the fencing work in the said areas. The valley-based CSOs urged the government to halt fencing work in the “disputed area.” It appealed to the government to resolve the issue first before resuming the fencing work.
