Arunachal Pradesh has requested Union Minister Nitin Gadkari for retention of three strategic roads with the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) in the state.
The roads — Joram-Koloriang (158 km), Anini-Meka (235 km) and Demwe-Hawai (165 km) — have already been handed over from BRO to the National Highway Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited ( NHIDCL).
Chief Minister Kalikho Pul, who is currently camping in the national capital, yesterday took up the matter with the Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways, an official release said here today.
In the event of natural calamities or any law and order issues, BRO with its adequate manpower, machinery and dedicated line of communication was better equipped to handle the situation, Pul said.
Gadkari assured that he would look into the matter and asked the state government to monitor the works of the BRO, the release said.Share This
