@radhakrish,
Carbohydrates are synthesized during the light independent reactions of photosynthesis, which generally takes place in leaves and herbaceous stems, inside the stroma of chloroplasts. Carbohydrates are translocated throughout the plant body, roots may act as storage structures, containing a high concentrations of carbohydrates but they don't synthesize or absorb them. In some cases, modified/specialized roots such as aerial roots or prop roots may contain some chloroplasts and may be capable of carbohydrate synthesis, but below ground roots cannot photosynthesize.
