Reckong Peo (Himachal Pradesh), Sep 29 (IANS) Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh Sunday said a British-era road in Kinnaur district that leads to Tibet border would be restored for traffic.
The Hindustan-Tibet Road, which once connected Rampur, the seat of the erstwhile princely state of Bushair, to Tibet border, would be broadened to enable plying of buses, the chief minister said at a rally here.
He said the state had provided all possible assistance to bring normalcy back in the district hit by heavy rains.
Incessant rainfall in the region June 16 triggered massive landslides that blocked many roads in Kinnaur.
Over 300 houses were damaged and the horticulture and agriculture sectors was affected, official sources said.
The chief minister said the damaged portion of the Thakur Sen Government Degree College here would be replaced by a light-weighted hi-tech structure at a cost of Rs.3 crore.
