Arunachal Guv exhorts troops to rededicate themselves to core value of Indian Army


Itanagar, Oct 27 (UNI) Arunachal Pradesh Governor Lt General (Retd) KT Parnaik has exhorted all infantry troops stationed in the frontier state to rededicate themselves to the core value of Indian Army and proud traditions of bravery, sacrifice, selfless devotion to duty, professionalism and resolve to defend the integrity and sovereignty of the Nation.(Indian Army )

The Governor was speaking during the 77th Infantry Day celebration at the Tezpur (Assam)-based 4 Corps, widely known as Gajraj Corps, on Friday.

On the occasion, he laid a wreath at the Gajraj War Memorial to honour the heroes of Infantry, who made the supreme sacrifice in service of the Nation.

This day has a unique significance for the Nation, as it was on this day in 1947 that Infantry-men from the Indian Army became the first troops to land at Srinagar airport, an act which turned back the invaders from the outskirts of Srinagar and saved the state of Jammu and Kashmir from a Pakistan backed tribal invasion.

The Governor, who is on a two-day visit to the Corps Headquarters, which he commanded in 2009, interacted with the Principal Staff Officers and all ranks, including Kangto Expedition Team.

Earlier, General Officer Commanding, 4 Corps, Lt General Manish Erry briefed the Governor about the initiatives by 4 Corps and its area of responsibilities (AoR), which includes the western part of Arunachal Pradesh.
