The Eastern Army Command has organised a ‘National Integration Tour’ for school children from Tuting Valley and Yinkiong district of Arunachal Pradesh, with the aim to acquaint them with the rich cultural heritage of our country. On Wednesday the children got the opportunity to interact with Lt Gen Abhay Krishna, General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Eastern Command, who shared his thoughts on ‘Unity in Diversity’ with them.
The tour that is underway from 1 Jan to 6 Jan has evoked keen interest amongst the 25 students from Tuting Valley and 26 students from Yinkiong District. As part of the tour, the children were provided with glimpses of cultural heritage of Kolkata through their visits to Fort William, Howrah Bridge, Victoria Memorial and Indian Museum. Army routinely undertakes such national integration tours for children in various parts of the country.
This initiative is an effort towards giving opportunity to students of NE to integrate with rest of the country and in turn contribute towards Nation Building and increasing opportunities available due to developing economy of the nation.
