Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday inaugurated the Sisseri Bridge built by the Border Road Organisation (BRO) located on Pasighat-Bomjir Highway in Arunachal Pradesh.
The 200-metre bridge on the Sisseri River connecting Pasighat and Roing in the northeastern state would reduce travel time between both places by nearly five hours.
Singh said that both the Indian Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) have reduced tension on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) “despite perceptional differences”.
The minister, who is on a two-day visit to Arunachal Pradesh, made the remark after visiting an Indian Army forward post at Bumla near the border with China and interacting with soldiers and officers there.
This is Rajnath Singh’s maiden visit to Arunachal Pradesh as a defence minister.
