Defence Minister Rajnath Singh
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday inaugurated 44 bridges made by Border Roads Organisation (BRO) across seven states and Union Territories including Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh via video-conferencing.
He also laid the foundation stone for Nechiphu Tunnel on road to Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh during the event.
Lauding the BRO for continuing the projects during the lockdown period, the defence minister said that the newly-built bridges will help in facilitating military movement in key areas.
It is expected to help the armed forces immensely, as large numbers of personnel are deployed in areas where transport is not available throughout the year.
