Brig Vinay Bahl raised the issues faced by Border Roads Organisation (BRO) in the construction of new roads along with the widening of existing roads in the border areas of Ladakh. He also informed the L-G about the clearance taken by them from the Wildlife Board for the construction and widening of the said roads but direction received from the Wildlife Department of Ladakh to stop the construction and widening of the road.

Brig Bahl apprised the L-G of some issues faced by them in completing the said project within the stipulated time frame and requested his intervention in this regard. Brig Srivastava also apprised the L-G of the issue faced by them in the construction of new roads in the Changthang area.

The L-G asked Brig Bahl and Brig Srivastava to meet Principal Chief Conservator of Forests Brij Mohan Sharma to find a viable solution to address their issues as these projects will not only benefit the people of Ladakh but also the country on the security front.

Meanwhile. a delegation from IIT-Madras led by Professor Sachin S Gunthe called on the L-G Mishra and took stock of the Sindhu Central University.
