KUPWARA: As part of The Indian Army’s continuing endeavour to reach out to the populace, 47 Rashtriya Rifles and 152 Infantry Battalion (TA) SIKH under the aegis of Headquarter 8 Sector Rashtriya Rifles, organized a dress distribution for poor, backward children of village Gujjarpatti & Keegam, District - Kupwara on 18 Feb 2012. 100 children were distributed sweaters by the Army.
The welfare activities undertaken by the Army have indeed helped in bringing the ‘Awam’ even closer. The villagers were very appreciative of the efforts of the Battalion. The village elders were profusely thankful and wanted such welfare activities to be held at regular intervals. Surely the step will go a long way in fostering bonds of mutual respect and brotherhood between the Army and the local population.
