The parliamentary standing committee on defense expressed a grave concern over Tawang. As per a government report, the condition of the roads in Tawang is very poor and it will take a day for the Indian army to reach there. The defense ministry was concerned as Tawang is a strategically important place for India when it comes to military establishment.

Parliament’s standing committee on defense, in a recently-tabled report, said, it was “dismayed to note that in Tawang, the situation is very critical insofar as connectivity is concerned.”

“While our neighboring country can reach the border within two or three hours, our Army takes more than a day to reach there. This is a matter of great concern with regard to our defense preparedness,” the report said. The committee has recommended the construction of “good quality roads in this area on priority basis.”

The committee said that connectivity between Himachal Pradesh and the Ladakh region is “very crucial” for the expeditious movement of troops and equipment, and it also recommended the construction of the Nyemo-Padum-Darcha Road to connect the two.

Recently, in the month of December 2014, Chinese troops had intruded into Ladakh and Tawang, and it was only after a diplomatic talk they left the place.
