Jammu and Kashmir Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha said on Sunday that security forces in the Union Territory had the upper hand over terrorism sponsored by the neighboring country.
Addressing a special NCC cadet national integration camp under the “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat” program, Sinha also said J&K had the lowest crime rate in the country.
UT of Jammu and Kashmir has the lowest crime rate in the whole country and our security forces have the upper hand against terrorism sponsored by the neighboring country, Sinha said, while denouncing the myth created around J&K’s public order situation.
J&K, which has been kept out of industrial growth for decades, has now become an up-and-coming destination for investors and industries around the world.
Still, attempts are made to create a bad perception of JK. All of you who attend this camp have a responsibility to break these myths and carry the message of peace, prosperity and the change that is happening in UT,” LG told NCC cadets.
Around 200 cadets from across the country attended the camp organized by the National Cadet Corps, Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh Directorate.
Sinha praised the role of the NCC in developing character, camaraderie, discipline, spirit of adventure and ideals of selfless service in the young citizens of the country.
The program “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat” propagates the rich cultural heritage of the country, promotes people-to-people contacts, knowledge of the language, traditions and practices of different States/UTs to enhance understanding and ties between them, has said the LG. .
The world’s largest uniformed youth organization, NCC, reflects Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat” which brings together the diverse linguistic, cultural and religious threads into a composite national identity, Sinha said. .
Such camps are indeed a true representation of the whole nation and the unity of the country, he added.
Emphasizing the need to improve interaction and promote mutual understanding between regions, LG said that this special national integration camp in Srinagar has certainly enabled young people coming from different parts of the country to create a better understanding of J&K.
Today, JK is performing better than many other states/UTs in sectors such as business, healthcare, smart city projects, education, digitalization, e-governance, infrastructure, connectivity, sports, innovation, startups and energy per capita, etc., Sinha said. .
