Warangal: District Collector Amrapali Kata has asked the members of National Cadet Corps (NCC) to create awareness among rural masses on the importance of healthy sanitation practices.
As part of the Swachh Bharat campaign launched by the Union government, the NCC cadets should make efforts to spread the message of cleanliness at households, villages, district and State-level. Cleanliness has a great importance in one’s life and has socio-economic significance.
Hence the cadets across the country should take up the task of educating the rural masses to prevent open defecation and to construct individual sanitary latrines, Amrapali appealed while addressing a gathering at the ongoing NCC National Integration Camp at NIT Warangal on Wednesday.
“Those live in villages often undermine healthy sanitation practices and remain reluctant to construct sanitary latrines at their homes. Efforts should be made to withdraw such reluctance from the villagers. This task is only possible with the NCC cadets who are spread across the nation,” the Collector said.
Similarly, the cadets have to focus on the development of the villages. The State and Central governments were spending huge amounts on village development and public welfare, the cadets have to explain the public to make use of them and progress.
In the wake of increasing pollution and environmental degradation across the globe, it was pertinent to focus on the issue. The NCC cadets along with local residents at their places should take up environmental programmes, Amrapali suggested.
Army Recruitment Officer, Secunderabad, Pavan Puri said the NCC cadets were always at the forefront to offer their services voluntarily for the nations’ security. He explained the process of Indian Armed Forces recruitment process and said the cadets who get NCC A, B and C certificates would be given priority in the recruitment.
Joining the Armed Forces would be the best opportunity to serve the nation, he added. The Group commander and the NIC commandant colonel Rajnish Kapur presided over the programme and presented a memento to the District Collector. The deputy camp commandant Shalabh Tripathi, major V Charan, major Anuja Chaturvedi, captain V Narender, captain Indira Gogoi, lieutenant Dr M Sadanandam and others present.
The 12-day National Integration Camp (NIC) was being conducted by NCC Warangal Group 10 (T) Battalion. The cadets from 15 NCC directorates spread in 26 states and three Union Territories were taking part in the camp.
