The BRI officials reportedly claimed that the emergency landing strip had no connection with border conflict with China and called it as an old project which was approved some time ago.

The work has started adjacent to the newly constructed national highway between Srinagar and Jammu near South Kashmir’s Bijbehara area. An NHAI officer said the project involves the development of a 3.5-kilometre emergency landing strip.
