BRO and ITBP carrying out relief work at Gangori

 Chief Secretary Alok Kumar Jain appreciated BRO Chief Engineer KK Rajdan for speedy construction of Valley Bridge at Gangori. He also lauded ITBP jawans for carrying out relief works on war footing with great dedication. Despite incessant rain 150 jawans were engaged in constructing 180 feet long bridge. BRO Commander UK Pandey said that construction was almost over and would be opened for traffic on Monday.

          Chief Secretary Jain said that the bridge would connect hundreds of villages that were stranded due to damage to Gangori Bridge in natural calamity. The bridge would also connect Gangotri National highway to Uttarkashi. At Bhatwari too construction of 110 feet long Valley Bridge was almost over which would be opened soon. The bridge would facilitate transportation of heavy machines for the repair of damaged roads at Bhatwari, Agoda, Gajoli, Bhankol, Dasda and Gram Sabha Nald. Mr. Jain said that this would help in bringing back life in these areas to normalcy. He said that BRO was continuously working at Dharasu Band and Nalu Pani sliding zone.
The Chief Secretary is personally monitoring the relief works at Uttarkashi and taking information about the situation.
