To help faster movement of people and armed forces to the India-China border, two strategically important bridges were inaugurated on Saturday in Arunachal Pradesh.

Chief Minister Pema Khandu inaugurated the 50-metre and 45-metre long bridges constructed by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) in a record time despite COVID-19 related adversaries.

Dedicating the bridges to the nation, Khandu said Tawang Chhu river bridge (in Tawang district) and Sukha Nallah bridge (in West Kameng district) would allow faster movement of civilians and military towards the McMahon Line which demarcated Chinese territory from Indian.

He praised the BRO engineers and personnel for securing the borders of the country and also providing employment and trading opportunities for Indians living in border areas through their investment in roads and bridges.

"I congratulate the BRO for completing the construction of the two bridges in a record time," the Chief Minister said.

On fears about the possibility of coronavirus spread in Arunachal Pradesh through central paramilitary, Army and BRO personnel, the Chief Minister said these forces have their own SOPs, which are followed strictly.

Later in the afternoon, the Chief Minister inaugurated a police station at Jang ADC headquarters in the presence of Tawang MLA Tsering Tashi.

Arunachal Pradesh shares India's 1,080 km border with China in the north and northeast.
