44 Strategic Road Construction Projects Along The India-China Border
It also stated that the CPWD has been entrusted with construction of 44 strategically important roads along the Indo-China Border spanning 5 states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh. And these 44 strategically roads along the India-China border will be constructed at a cost of nearly Rs. 21,000 crore.
The report comes at a time where China is giving a priority to projects along its India borders. Last year, Indian and Chinese troops engaged in a face-off at the Doklam tri-junction after the neighbouring country had begun building road in the area. The standoff ended on August 28 following a mutual agreement under which China stopped the construction of the road and India withdrew its troops.
