Arunachal Pradesh Governor B D Mishra was of the view that the National Cadet Corps (NCC) is a very important part of academic curriculum.
“The NCC has been instilling nationalism, patriotism and spirit of ‘nation first’ amongst the young students,” Mishra said while interacting with officers and cadets of the first Arunachal Pradesh battalion of the NCC at Raj Bhavan in Itanagar on Saturday.
“It (NCC) inculcates self-discipline, obedience, sincerity and determination amongst the cadets. There must be more and more NCC units, which will help in developing a disciplined human resource in our State,” Mishra said.
Sharing his idea of organizing an Independence Day NCC camp in place of the Republic Day NCC camp to avoid academic losses to the students, the Governor asked the officers and cadets to provide him with required inputs, “so that it can be pursued at the highest decision making authority’s level.”
First Arunachal Pradesh Bn NCC’s commanding officer Col R K Sharma, second-in-command Lt Col NK Bishnoi, NCC officers, instructors and cadets who participated in the Republic Day parades shared their experiences with the Governor.
