TEZPUR, Jan 10: Arunachal Pradesh Governor BD Mishra exhorted the cadets of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) to imbibe leadership instincts, develop sublime personality traits, and join the Indian armed forces.
Mishra was attending the ‘Ek Bharat, shreshta bharat’ (EBSB) camp being conducted by the NCC’s northeastern region (NCC NER) additional director general (ADG) at Tezpur University (TU) here in Assam on 10 January.
“The NCC is a very important institution which has been instilling nationalism, patriotism and the spirit of ‘nation first’ among young students,” the governor said.
He said the NCC helps in building character, camaraderie and leadership, and inculcates self-discipline, obedience, sincerity and determination among the cadets.
“The NCC cadets must personify the motto of the corps, which is ‘Unity and discipline’,” he said.
Among others, the governor’s wife Neelam Misra, NCC NER ADG Maj Gen Raju Chauhan, the NCC’s Tezpur Group Headquarters Group Commander, Brig KS Rao, Deputy Group Commander, Col RB Patil, and TU Pro Vice Chancellor, Prof Dilip Kumar Saikia, were present on the occasion.
The EBSB camp, which began on 1 January and will conclude on 12 January, is aimed at to providing an opportunity to the cadets to understand the cultural diversity, history, flora and fauna of India. It also aims to create awareness among the cadets regarding the diverse cultural heritage of the country.
Six hundred cadets, comprising 100 from Uttar Pradesh and the rest from all eight states of the Northeast region, are participating in the camp. (Raj Bhavan)
