Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinai Kumar Saxena has written to 10 universities in the city, asking them to submit an action plan for sending students to visit border areas as part of "Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav" by Thursday. Saxena has decided to send students from the national capital on an exposure visit to the country's border areas following a meeting of the National Committee for Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"During the meeting headed by the prime minister, it was suggested that university students should be sent on such visits and the LG, thereafter, decided that as part of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, all the universities should sponsor at least 75 students for an exposure trip to border areas in collaboration with the defence forces and central police organisations," the LG office said in a statement on Monday.

"Aimed at sensitising the students about the exemplary work being done by our defence forces and central police organisations despite difficult terrain and inclement weather, these visits will ensure that the students understand and appreciate the importance of our independence and sovereignty," the statement read. Accordingly, the LG Secretariat wrote to the vice-chancellors of the 10 universities to submit an action plan for the same by 15 September.
