No shortage of funds for Border Infrastructure, says Rajnath Singh

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has assured that there will be no shortage of funds for building border infrastructure.

Inaugurating the 43rd Annual Day function of MES Builders Association of India in New Delhi today, the Union Home Minister said the Government will expedite Forest and Environmental clearances which still continue to dog such strategic projects. He claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also laid emphasis on this issue and relaxations will be obtained to facilitate completion of projects in national interest.

Mr Singh highlighted the importance of the Private-Public Partnership (PPP) model to create strategic infrastructure in the country.
