With My Himachal President, Dr. Bhugol Chandelâ€™s continuous efforts, a bridge on Gobind Sagar is sanctioned by Himachal government. A 330 meter long double laned motorable bridge would be constructed at a cost of Rs. 48 crore to connect Talwad and Beri Darolan in district Bilaspur. The foundation stone of the bridge will be laid by the Chief Minister, Virbhadra Singh on 23rd March during Nalwar fair.
When completed, the construction of this bridge is going to benefit people of Bilaspur, Hamirpur and Kangra districts. “We visioned the construction of this bridge in 1984 to help development of the area “, said Dr. Chandel. During his last visit to India meeting with Himachal Chief Minister and forest minister Ram Lal Thakur he asked Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh to start the construction work of this bridge during this year.
“We are thankful to present government of Virbhadra Singh and its developmental policies for the rural areas,” said Dr. Chandel. Dr. Chandel gives credit of this achievement to continuous support of fellow Himachalis via My Himachal discussion forum and emails. He also thanks people and local political leaders from Bilaspur behind this endeavor. This bridge was his life dream and he congrats everyone associated with this initiative.
