Under the new sanctioned project, the provision will also be made to include setting up a wire mesh along the nallah to dissuade public from throwing garbage, plastic waste in the nallah as it leads to clogging besides causing over flooding of drains.

KG: It is true that border tourism is a good concept to give a boost to the ailing border tourism in our state and in this regard, we are providing better road connectivity in the border areas.
Roads are an essential link to the border areas and the government is laying thrust on promotion of border tourism activities and upgrading roads is vital in this regard.
Meanwhile, upgradation of road infrastructure is one of the top-most priorities of the Government and it has taken up up-gradation and blacktopping of all important roads.
It will benefit the people of R S Pura, adjoining areas and especially tourists coming to visit Suchetgarh border.
