Centre unveils 27 border infrastructure projects

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that a conflict of any kind can never be completely ruled out in today’s uncertain environment, while listing the development of border infrastructure as one measure to help India meet any challenges in the future. 

He announced 27 road and bridge projects implemented by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO), stating that India would not have been able to respond strongly to the adversary in the northern sector without infrastructure. 

The 24 roads inaugurated at a virtual ceremony include one built at an altitude of more than 19,000 feet on the Umling-La pass in southern Ladakh, Singh said, adding it has now become the world’s highest motorable road. 

As Rajnath Singh noted, the roads in border areas do not only serve strategic purposes but also ensure an equal participation of remote areas in the development of the nation.
