    PM Modi inaugurates Atal Tunnel, Rohtang | Highlights

    • After construction of this tunnel at the height of 10,040 feet, Himachal Pradesh, a small state, has got recognition not only in the nation but in the whole world. There is no other tunnel of this length at this height
    • Border Roads Organisation completed construction of Atal Tunnel within its estimated cost of construction. This tunnel is dedicated to the soldiers guarding our borders & those living near border areas: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh at Rohtang

    • Atal tunnel will give new strength to India's border infrastructure. It is an example of world-class border connectivity. There have been demands to improve border infrastructure but for a long time, such projects either couldn't get out of planning stage or got stuck midway

    • Connectivity has a direct connection with development. Connectivity in border areas is directly related to security issues

    • Atal Ji laid the foundation stone of approach road of this tunnel in 2002. Till 2013-2014, progress was made only on 1,300 meters of this tunnel. After 2014, the project progressed with unprecedented pace

    • Emphasis has been put on the development of border infrastructure. Its benefits are being extended to the common people as well as our armed forces personnel

    • There is nothing more important for us than protecting the country. But the country has also seen that a period when the defense interests of the country were compromised

    • Many other important projects were treated in the same way as Atal tunnel. The strategically important Daulat Beg Oldi airstrip in Ladakh remained closed for 40–45 years. I don't want to go into details as to what was the helplessness and the pressure behind it

    • I request the Ministry of Education that the students of engineering & technical studies related universities should be given a chance to do a case study of Atal Tunnel. The students must learn how this tunnel was built: PM Modi at the inauguration of Atal Tunnel, Rohtang
