India, Burma sealing borders to check Nagas

The Prime Minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, told the Lok Sabha to-day [April 3, New Delhi] there was no question of any joint action between India and Burma for sealing their border to prevent Naga and Mizo hostiles taking advantage of Burmese territory to establish contact with China. Mrs. Gandhi, who was replying to Mr. Hem Barua said: “We are making every effort to seal the border on our side and they (the Burmese) are doing the same on their side.”
