No compromise on quality of roads: Pul

By Correspondent

ITANAGAR, May 21 - Taking serious note of repeated public complaints on �poor� quality of border roads being constructed and maintained by BRO, Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Kalikho Pul has observed that any compromise on work quality could have serious ramifications on country�s security front, saying that �China is not Pakistan.�

Speaking to Assistant Director General Border Roads Dr SS Porwal here recently, the Chief Minister said that since Arunachal Pradesh is a strategically located border State, the security issues attached with road construction could not be taken lightly.

�While neighbouring China has built high quality roads, railways and airways in the vicinity, our Indian side is still struggling with porter tracks and unable to even maintain a single border road,� lamented the Chief Minister while pointing out the inordinate delay in completing several border roads in Tawang district bordering China.

Pul also brought to the notice of the Asstt DGBR the repeated public complaints on BRO�s construction materials being sold in the open market. Terming it as �unfortunate�, he said, �BRO is in Arunachal not for commercial purpose but in the interest of nation and to serve the people.�

Stating that leakage of construction materials was a serious offence, the Chief Minister informed that instructions had been given to all district administrations and Police to immediately arrest all such offenders and to conduct surprise checks to prevent such malpractices.

He also exhorted the people not to purchase construction materials illegally from BRO but to buy it from genuine dealers in the market.

Further urging the BRO to stay alert during the time of natural calamity such as flood, he advised the visiting official to resolve all its internal limitations informing that road communication in Tawang, Anini, Hawai and Chaglagam were presently cut off.

Also to make BRO competent enough to serve the people, he advised the BRO official to increase its manpower and to supplement it with modern machines and equipments. He observed that the organisation was witnessing decline in manpower with its machineries and equipments becoming obsolete.

Suggesting measures to enable safe ride on hilly roads for the commuters, he urged for construction of crash barrier in all identified accident prone areas to protect vehicles and its occupants from falling off the cliff.
