Itanagar: Border Roads Organisation (BRO) director-general, Lt Gen Rajeev Chaudhary, called on Governor Brig (Retd) BD Mishra at Raj Bhavan, during which they discussed matters related to strengthening the road communication in the frontier state.

During the meeting, the governor emphasised the necessity for good construction and quality of roads, the use of the latest technologies to stop untimely deterioration and preventing any mishaps during the construction of the road.

He stressed on the proper maintenance of roads so that they remain open for traffic throughout the year.

“Road communication for the territorial security of the nation is of paramount importance in Arunachal Pradesh as the state shares its borders with three countries,” the governor said.

He further pointed out that the state police face a lot of hardship, especially during medical emergencies, transportation of perishable agricultural products, and other economic activities due to inclement climate and heavy rainfall, following which road communication gets disrupted.
