NCC Group Headquarters Sgr conducts outreach prog in Anantnag
Srinagar: With an aim to reinvigorate NCC training activities in South Kashmir, NCC Group Headquarters Srinagar conducted an outreach programme in Anantnag.
“The program was chaired by Maj Gen Tejinder Kumar, ADG NCC Directorate JK&L, and attended by more than 100 school and college heads of Pulwama, Shopian, Kulgam, and Anantnag, along with representatives of Department of School Education Kashmir and Director Colleges Kashmir,” said PRO (Defence) Srinagar.
“Maj Gen Tejinder Kumar apprised the attendees that since there is no suitable NCC training facility in the region the cadets of South Kashmir are required to travel far away from their homes to attend NCC Training camps which leads to additional traveling time and avoidable loss of academic days,” the PRO said.
“Moreover, the parents are also hesitant to send their children far away from home, hence participation from cadets is also negatively affected. Thus, with the aim of facilitating NCC training for children of South Kashmir closer to their homes, it is imperative that such camps are conducted in the region. He requested district administration Anantnag, to provide a suitable training area in the region as soon as possible,” he said.
The PRO further said: “The proposal was agreed by Gulzar Ahmad, KAS, Additional Deputy Commissioner, who attended the program. Brigadier KS Kalsi Group Cdr NCC Group Srinagar apprised the attendees that the Divisional Commissioner Kashmir has already agreed to provide suitable land as required for the construction of a fully equipped NCC training node in the area, where such NCC training camps can be conducted. The initiative was highly appreciated by all the attendees and they unanimously supported the same.”
“In the end, Brigadier KS Kalsi thanked the District Administration Anantnag, Deptt of School Education Kashmir as well as Director colleges Kashmir for their support in making the program a success,” he added.
