Children are part of National Integration Tour being conducted by Indian Army. The tour was flagged off from Udhampur, J&K on 11 December 17 and during the course of the tour, the participants visited various cultural and historical places in Delhi and Agra.
As part of the Indian Army’s ongoing outreach programme to foster the spirit of National Integration, such tours provide an insight into the rich heritage of the country as well as various developmental and industry initiatives that are underway.
Such initiatives also expose them to various career options and enable them to interact with renowned personalities. General Rawat shared his experiences with the students and motivated them to work hard and contribute actively in the nation building process.
