Taking to his X handle, Arunachal CM wrote, “I’m so happy to learn that the International Book of Honour, England, has recognized Sela Tunnel as the highest one in the country. This 2.598-km long engineering marvel by @BROindia at an altitude of 13000 ft on Tezpur-Tawang road has given a big boost to the ease of connectivity in the strategic region of Arunachal Pradesh.”

Earlier on March 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Sela Tunnel, the world’s longest twin-lane tunnel, in Arunachal Pradesh.

Situated at an altitude of 13,000 feet, the strategically important Sela Tunnel will ensure all-weather connectivity to Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh.

Following the tunnel’s inauguration, PM Modi, in a speech, said, “You must have heard of ‘Modi Ki Guarantee’. You will understand its significance once you visit Arunachal. The entire Northeast bears witness to this. I laid the foundation of the Sela Tunnel here in 2019, and today it has been inaugurated.”
