By NDTV

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday while inaugurating 27 projects constructed by the Border Roads Organisation spoke about the need to develop border areas in “today’s uncertain environment when the possibility of any kind of conflict cannot be ruled out.”

“In the present uncertain environment, the possibility of any kind of conflict cannot be ruled out. Such situations motivate us even more for the development of these (border) areas. It is a matter of pride that we have BRO for cooperation in the development of these areas, as an efficient and dedicated organization,” said Mr Singh.

“There are some special needs which need to be taken care of in the process of developing border areas, we paid attention to those needs and worked on them at the ground level. We saw that capital infusion is needed in these areas, which cannot be possible without connectivity,” added Mr Singh.

Mr Singh in his address talked about the importance of connectivity and roads in the process of developing nations and communities.

Defence Minister shared the fact that a road built by BRO at an altitude of 19000 feet on the Umling-La pass in southern Ladakh is the world’s highest motorable road.
