The MP said border pillar dispute came up during the fencing of the border between India (Manipur sector) and Myanmar. To look into the matter, Home Ministry officials visited Imphal while Chief Minister N Biren Singh requested Union Home Minister Amit Shah to resurvey the border pillar.

Due to the border dispute, locals of the border area have been boycotting the border fencing work as some of the border pillars are found shifting towards the Manipur sector boundary, he added.

The disputed border pillars are pillar number 64 to 68, pillar number 75 to 79, border pillar number 88 to 95 and old border pillar 80 to 82, he informed.
