India to Build Tunnel under 14000 Ft High Sela Pass Near Chinese Border

NEW DELHI — In a bid to ensure all-weather connectivity between the mainland and the hinterlands bordering China, the Indian government has announced the construction of a tunnel at the majestic Sela Pass that sits at 14000 feet above sea level. Primarily, the idea is to cut down the time taken by troops to travel to Tawang — a potential military flashpoint for its disputed status.
India’s Minister of Finance Arun Jaitley confirmed the plan during the presentation of the annual budget in Parliament on Thursday. (Agencies)
