To familiarise the students from the far flung areas of the Valley with the rich traditions and culture of our nation, the Army had organised a Capacity Building Tour for the youth of Uri to Pune and Mumbai from 21st September 2018.
The tour endowed the students with an opportunity to visit many places of immense historical and cultural significance, such as Haji Ali Dargah, Gateway of India, Hotel Taj, Elephanta Caves, Nehru Planetarium, BCCI Museum, Chatrapati Shivaji Museum and the Naval Dockyard in Mumbai. While in Pune, the students visited Southern Command War Memorial Museum, Fergusson College and National Defence Academy at Khadakvasla.
During the flagging in ceremony of the Tour, GOC Dagger Division interacted with the students and felicitated them. He also encouraged them to be messengers of peace and share their experience with their peers and friends to usher in the winds of change in Uri.
