Firearms display marks NCC Day

An array of weapons was the main attraction, followed by motivational words, at ABM College, Golmuri, where the 67th National Cadet Corps (NCC) Day was celebrated with much fervour on Monday.

Students from intermediate to postgraduate batches, staff, faculty as well as guests from Sonari Army Camp gathered on Golmuri campus at 11am.

Light, medium and carbine machine guns, Insas, self-loading and 0.22 rifles were exhibited.

Though NCC Day is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of November, the college postponed the event by a day, citing greater participation of students on a weekday.

“Our NCC wing has been very active. Be it Republic Day, Independence Day or any awareness campaign, we have taken all initiatives. It was imperative to celebrate this day so that our cadets and students learn the importance of the NCC,” said principal of ABM College S.B. Tiwary.

Jamshedpur MP Ajoy Kumar, who graced the occasion as the chief guest, interacted with students and emphasised on education.

Kumar stressed on the importance of higher education for youths. The students also interacted with the MP, hurling questions at him.

Lieutenant Colonel R.K. Sharma and Kishore Singh from Sonari Army Camp also attended the celebrations.

Prime minister Jawahar Lal Nehru presided over the function of raising the first NCC Unit in New Delhi in November 1948.
