Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Mr. Nitin Gadkari, inaugurated and laid the foundation stone of 9 NH (National Highways) projects of 243 km length worth Rs. 1,357 crore (US$ 173.31 million) in Rajasthan.

Speaking at the event, he said that widening the Ninawa section from Sanchore on NH-168A in the state will boost business for the Chalaur district's granite industry and make it simpler for farmers to get to Suratgarh Mandi.

He claimed that the construction of a two-lane highway connecting Sriganganagar with Raisinghnagar on NH-911 and the reinforcement of Sriganganagar from Suratgarh on NH-62 will make it simpler to reach the international border and the military outpost on either side of the road, strengthening India's strategic position. He claimed that improved border connectivity for the armed forces and the creation of new jobs would propel Rajasthan towards development and prosperity.
