Banglahant Desk: The dispute between India and China over Arunachal Pradesh is long standing. A few days ago, a war situation was created between the two disputed countries over Dokalam. With that in mind, India has strengthened its military infrastructure in northeast India. India has built a new bridge on the Chinese border in Arunachal Pradesh after Dhola-Shadia and Bugibil.
The Daporizo Bridge was built over the Subansiri River in Arunachal Pradesh. The bridge was built in less than a month during the war. There were lockdowns all over India in this one month. Despite the lockdown, the staff and officers of the Border Roads Organization in an emergency demand praise for the way the work on the bridge has progressed.
India has built these bridges to deliver troops and supplies in less time to remote border areas of northeastern India. Beneath the bridge is the Kharsrota River, and hundreds of workers have built the bridge in a month's effort, ignoring the danger. This bridge will be able to run two cars side by side. However, it is known that it will take some time for the tank to go. Earlier, BRO had built several huge bridges in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, including Bugibil Bridge, Dhola Shadia Bridge and Siseri Bridge.
It is to be noted that China has been claiming Arunachal Pradesh, one of the states of independent India, as its territory for a long time. Beijing has recently deployed large numbers of troops, bombers and tanks in Tibet. The idea is that the Red Army could attack India at any time. So, learning from the 1962 war, India built two successive bridges over the Mahabahu Brahmaputra to strengthen its military infrastructure in Arunachal Pradesh. The arrangement is for fast delivery of Russian-made T-80, T-90 Bhishma and Arjun tanks in the hands of India to the border.
