An item on the inauguration of the Bogibeel bridge in Assam by PM Modi, which is headlined after PM Modi’s remarks on the occasion claiming good-bye to the culture of delay (inherited from previous Congress Governments).

It mentions that this bridge, completed after inordinate delays, is the only bridge in India that is fully welded according to European standards and has a service life of 120 years.

The item cites Indian media (and a Chinese expert) comments to note the military/strategic importance of the bridge, while also playing down, at the same time, the military significance. of the connectivity near the Sino-Indian border, and between Assam and Arunachal Pradesh, afforded by completion of the bridge.
