2 January 2020, Shram Shakti Bhawan, Rafi Marg, New Delhi - Today a delegation of Rashtriya Sainik Sansthan met the Hon'ble Mr. Mahendra Nath Pandey, Minister for Skill Development and Mr. Nikhil Kumar, Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development. The delegation included former Deputy Army Chief of the Indian Army, Lt. General Gurmeet Singh, National President of Rashtriya Sainik Sanstha, Vir Chakra, Col. Tejendra Pal Tyagi, Col. Amrish Kumar, Major Sushil Goyal and Gaurav Fighter, Rajendra Bagasi.
Colonel Tyagi told the Hon'ble Minister in two words that unless early military training will be made compulsory at the level of High School, it is meaningless to imagine good days in the country. Colonel Tyagi said that the initial military training is not only to provide minor practice of drill, PT, ambush and petrol to the children of class 10 but also tell them the things that can make them a good citizen of the country. To become a good citizen, it is also necessary to give initial information to every child about freedom struggle, personal development, waste management, traffic management, disaster management, pollution control, artificial intelligence (AI), meditation. All these things can be accomplished by properly explaining the duties mentioned in Article 51 (A) of the Constitution.
Today, Honorable Shri Mahendra Nath Pandey thanked the delegation of Rashtriya Sainik Sanstha from the heart and promised directly that they will take more action than we expected. He immediately ordered Secretary Shri Nikhil Kumar, IAS to act on the proposals given in writing by Rashtriya Sainik Sanstha on proper and priority basis.
