Itanagar, Oct 12 : Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said on Monday that despite challenging times due to Covid-19 and border tensions and disputes caused by Pakistan and China, India was not only resolutely facing them but also bringing about historical changes in all sectors of development under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s able leadership.
Reiterating the Centres’ commitment to boost developmental activities in India’s border areas, the Minister said that progress in all such projects is regularly monitored and adequate funds provided for timely execution.
The Minister on Monday dedicated to the nation via videoconference 44 major permanent bridges built in seven border states and Union Territories in western, northern and north-eastern India and also laid the foundation of important Nechiphu tunnel in Arunachal Pradesh.
Singh also congratulated the Director General and other ranks of the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) for its achievements and said that the dedication of 44 bridges in one go was itself a record.
Lauding the BRO for its role in improving the border infrastructure, the Minister said that these bridges would further improve the connectivity in far-flung areas in the respective sectors and fulfil the aspirations of the area people.
“They will also meet the transport and logistics requirements of the armed forces throughout the year,” he added.
