New Delhi, July 14 (IANS) Acquisition of land remains the biggest challenge in road projects development, Road Transport and Highways Minister Kamal Nath said here Tuesday.
“When I look at the challenges ahead I feel that today land acquisition remains the biggest challenge for road construction,” Kamal Nath said while addressing a conclave on highways development.
