ITANAGAR, Jan 21 – The Border Roads Organisation would soon recruit engineers from Arunachal Pradesh for projects undertaken in the frontier State.
Around 1,000 engineers would be recruited through campus selection process where preference would be given to local Arunachal youths or unemployed engineers who have already completed their degree.
This was revealed by Director General Border Roads (DGBR) Lt Gen Rakesh Mohan Mittal who called on Chief Minister Nabam Tuki at his Niti Vihar official bungalow here last evening.
The DGBR informed the CM that all the road projects taken up by BRO in the State have taken momentum and the works are being expeditiously executed. He, however, cited few challenges faced by the BRO in construction of these roads like, security of BRO officers in the far-flung areas, shortage of construction materials and land acquisition matters.
The Chief Minister assured him to extend all possible support to BRO to ensure that the development of road network is not hampered.
