Construction begins for 150km road that will make it easy for armed forces to reach China border
PITHORAGARH: The work on the all-weather road in Uttarakhand has begun with the construction of the 150-km Tanakpur-Pithoragarh stretch which will make it easier for the armed forces to mobilise troops and armaments to the India-China border, officials said on Monday.
The section is a part of the 'All-Weather Roads Project' launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during the state assembly polls earlier this year.
It is likely to be completed by 2019. Mobilisation of forces and their armaments to the last posts on the India-China border in times of emergency will be much easier from the Tanakpur rail-head after the 150-km stretch is completed, officials associated with the project said.

This is a bold move by the Modi government, which was totally unimaginable during the corrupt UPA government. It may be called as One Belt One Road to China-OBORC to counter China''s OBOR!

Only Modi Govt has taken strategic interests of India seriously, since 1962 no lessons has been learnt and almost all successive govt overlooked this matter.
