Following a report published in TOI highlighting the villagers’ grievances, the Uttarakhand Rural Roads Development Agency (URRDA) CEO Kamrendra Singh issued a statement assuring that the pending work on the road will be finished within the next eight months. The road construction, crucial for connectivity along the Indo-China border, has faced challenges including alignment changes caused by landslides.
