Dehradun: Work on the strategically important Tawaghat-Lipulekh motor road in Uttarakhand will be completed soon by the BRO.
An assurance to this effect was given by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh in a letter to Chief Minister Harish Rawat, his media in-charge Surendra Kumar said here today.
The Chief Minister had recently written to the Union Minister asking him to expedite work on the strategically important road close to the India-China border in Uttarakhand.
Early completion of work on roads close to the borders
is in the country’s interest because it will help the border areas join the national mainstream, Rawat had said in his letter to Singh.
In response to the Chief Minister’s letter, the Home Minister said work on the project will be completed soon as directives to this effect have been issued to the BRO which has also been provided with the tools and machines needed to start work on the project.
Rawat has thanked Singh for acting promptly on his suggestion.
