BSF Inspector General Anup Chandra Thapliyal, who recently took over charge of Headquarters Border Security Force, Mizoram and Cachar Frontier at Masimpur near Silchar, told reporters that his first priority was to maintain cordial relations with BGB to tackle the various border problems in a coordinated manner.
