PM inaugurates world's longest twin-lane tunnel

Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his weekend with a jungle safari in Assam's Kaziranga National Park and the inauguration of the world's longest bi-lane tunnel (Sela Tunnel) in Arunachal Pradesh.

Situated at an altitude of 13,000 feet, the strategically important Sela Tunnel will ensure all-weather connectivity to Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh. Situated near the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the Tunnel is strategically crucial, providing year-round access to Tawang and other forward areas bordering China.

Following the tunnel's inauguration, PM Modi, in a speech, said, "You must have heard of 'Modi Ki Guarantee'. You will understand its significance once you visit Arunachal. The entire Northeast bears witness to this. I laid the foundation of the Sela Tunnel here in 2019, and today it has been inaugurated."

Earlier, PM Modi went on a jungle safari at the Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve this morning. He first took an elephant safari in the Central Kohora Range of the park, then went on a jeep safari in the same range with forest officials.
