The under-construction road connecting Dumak and other villages in Chamoli district along the Indo-China border in Uttarakhand, which has been delayed for 17 years, will be completed before the year ends.

Key Points

  • According to the sources, few voters in Dumak have decided to boycott Lok Sabha polls after being fed up with constant delays on the road construction.
  • Uttarakhand Rural Roads Development Agency (URRDA) CEO issued a statement saying that the pending work on the road will be completed in the next eight months.
    • The Agency shall act for the sole purpose of implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana under the guidance and norms as fixed by the National Rural Road Development Agency.

Indo-China Border

  • The border between India and China is not clearly demarcated throughout and there is no mutually agreed Line of Actual Control (LAC) along certain stretches.
  • LAC came into existence after the 1962 Indo China war.
  • India-China border is divided into three sectors:
    • Western Sector: Ladakh
    • Middle Sector: Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand
    • Eastern Sector: Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim
