NDA looking at North-East with eye on China

“BCIM corridor is an alternative to the Stilwell route,” said India’s ambassador to Bhutan, Gautam Bambawale.

Stilwell Road, dating back to World War II, is a 770 km highway linking North-East India with Myanmar and China, but India has been wary of opening this route for economic activity given its proximity to Arunachal Pradesh.
