He informed that upgrading and construction of roads and bridges projects under PWD (Roads and Bridges) such as North East Road Development Scheme, North East Special Infrastructure Development Scheme, Central Road Fund Economics Importance, Inter-State Connectivity and Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana, would not only provide connectivity but ultimately improve the economy and living condition of the people of the state.
