In a follow-up to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s assurance to representatives from 13 political parties that no part of Manipur territory will be compromised by construction of a fence along the Manipur-Myanmar border, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde will meet the delegates on Thursday.

Senior officials of Assam Rifles, the Border Security Force and other agencies will be present.

The parties are demanding suspension of construction works until after an agreement is reached.
