Situated at an altitude of 13,000 feet, the Sela Tunnel is poised to provide direct connectivity to the Tawang region of Arunachal Pradesh. Previously, this area faced prolonged closures due to inclement weather and heavy snowfall. However, with the completion of this tunnel, these challenges will be a thing of the past. Notably, the project includes two tunnels – the first, a 980-meter single tube, and the second, a 1555-meter-long tunnel, earning Sela Tunnel the distinction of being the longest and highest.

Experts anticipate that this infrastructure development will not only enhance India’s strategic position but also reduce the distance from China by ten kilometers. Moreover, it will significantly decrease travel time between four key army headquarters in Arunachal and Tawang, making the route between Bomdila and Tawang more accessible.

In addition to the inauguration of the Sela Tunnel, PM Modi will extend numerous gifts to Assam today, totaling Rs 18,000 crore. Among these gifts is the unveiling of the “Statue of Valor,” a 125-feet monument honoring the legendary Ahom General Lachit Barphukan. PM Modi will also launch several projects worth approximately Rs 18,000 crores in Melang Metelli, Pothar. These initiatives, particularly in the North-East, hold heightened significance during the election season.
