Replying to a written question in Lok Sabha, Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan said India is also focusing on improving infrastructure in the border regions to facilitate economic development as also to meet the country’s strategic and security requirements.

“The Government is aware that China is developing infrastructure in the border regions opposite India in Tibet and Xinjiang autonomous regions.

The Minister also said that in the last few years, the Government has increased the budgetary allocation for the construction of roads and bridges in the border areas. This, he said, has helped provide connectivity to the local population and better logistical support to the armed forces.

“Government gives careful and special attention to the improvement of infrastructure for the development of border areas, in order to facilitate the economic development of these areas as also to meet India’s strategic and security requirements,” he added.
