Atal Tunnel Strategic Significance
With the inauguration of Atal Tunnel under the #Rohtang_Pass / #Pir_Panjal ranges on 3rd October by the hon Prime Minister Shri #Narendra_Modi ji, connectivity issues for the #Lahual_Spiti area has been resolved.
Moreover, this will also work as a force multiplier for the Indian Defence preparedness as it has a huge strategic significance.
Yes connectivity to #Leh and #border areas of #Laddakh will improve with a reduction of approximately five hours of journey however it is still sometime before we have a year round connectivity even in the winter months…….Retd. Wing Commander Sushil Kumar Tactical Expert
