KISHTWAR: A Sector Rashtriya Rifles is deployed in District -Kishtwar. Remoteness of the area and ongoing militancy has adversely affected the overall development of Kishtwar region. Basic amenities and infrastructure is severely lacking in this area. The Rashtriya Rifles sector which is deployed in Kishtwar has undertaken several welfare and humanitarian missions. In order to inculcate a sense of belonging and bring national integration amongst the children residing in remote areas of Jammu and Kashmir, an educational/motivational tour is being undertaken under Operation Sadbhavana.
23 students belonging to remote and far flung villages from the district of Kishtwar along with two teachers are being taken to Delhi, Agra & Chandigarh on an educational cum motivation tour from 12 Feb 2012 to 21 Feb 2012. During the tour the children would be introduced to the rich tradition, heritage and culture in other parts of the country. The visit would go a long way in aligning the young and innocent children with the national mainstream.
Commander of Headquarter Sector Rashtriya Rifles while flagging off the tour on 11 Feb 2012 from Kishtwar expressed hope that the tour will have a positive impact on these young impressionable minds and will motivate them to excel in life.
