Guv inaugurates NCC Camp at Leh
Leh, Aug 27: Governor N N Vohra has emphasized the crucial importance of maintaining communal harmony and brotherhood and strengthening national integration, describing these as crucial pre-requisites for the country’s future growth and stability.
The Governor was inaugurating a 12-day Special National Integration Camp of NCC at the Rinchen Auditorium at Leh today in which over 320 NCC Cadets from all over the country, including 150 from Jammu and Kashmir, are participating.
The Governor observed that India is a multi-religious, multi-lingual and multi-cultural country where people from all faiths have lived together since centuries past.
He said that dozens of languages and nearly two thousand dialects are spoken in India, which is yet another example of our pluralistic traditions which are embedded deep in thousands of years of our socio-cultural traditions.
Referring to NCC, the Governor observed that it provides an excellent opportunity to our youth to work together and serve as a disciplined element of the country, besides strengthening the bonds of national integration and brotherhood. He said that the strength of our country lies in our collectivity, adding that if people from all parts of the country live and work together we can succeed in meeting any challenge to the nation.
Earlier, on arrival at the Airport at Leh from Srinagar this morning, the Governor was received by Rigzin Spalbar, Chief Executive Councillor, Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, Leh; Lt. Gen. Rakesh Sharma, GOC, 14 Corps; Air Cmde Rajesh Isser, Air Officer Commanding, Air Force Station, Leh; Simrandeep Singh, Deputy Commissioner, Leh; Abdul Khaliq, Officiating SP, Leh; and other senior Civil, Army and Police officers. Later, P Namgial, former Union Minister, was among those who were present at the Airport to see-off the Governor.
