Work hard, compete for Army’s ‘Super30’ prog: Gen Rawat to Kashmiri girl students

NEW DELHI: Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat on Wednesday exhorted girl students from Jammu and Kashmir to work hard and compete for Army’s ‘Super 30’ coaching programme and build their career through good education.

He was interacting with 18 girl students from various schools in the Valley, at the South Block here. “There is no other place like Kashmir when it comes to scenic beauty and a sublime environment. But, terrorism has vitiated the atmosphere,” he said.

“Unlike Kashmir, you do not see bunkers in Delhi or gun-toting security personnel everywhere. People roam here at night in peace. The Kashmir Valley also had peace and people in Srinagar even used to go for strolling in parks at night or for a movie, but it’s not there anymore,” he said. (AGENCIES)
