A media group thinks that these new bridges will worsen border standoff with China. These media houses should learn to be loyal to their country. Strengthening infrastructure is part of development. Faster movement along the border will make the enemies to rethink their strategies. These constructions should have happened several years back.
About 40-50 bridges are under construction in Ladakh which will be completed between 6 months to one and a half years: Lt Gen Harpal Singh, DG, Border Roads Organisation (BRO)
