Kakching Battalion of 28 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of HQ IGAR (S) celebrated Van Mahotsav with students of various school of Sugnu.

Yesterday, Inter School drawing competition was organised by Kakching Battalion in which 98 students of M Ganga Academy, United Public School, Grace English High School,  Trinity English School, St Joseph Higher Sec School and Ching Tam English School participated. The theme of the competition was ‘Save Environment’. The students from class 1st to 10th made sketches and paintings which not only were beautiful but conveyed an important message of afforestation.

A lecture was also delivered by Company Commander of Sugnu post highlighting the importance of trees and motivated the young minds to contribute significantly towards nature preservation and harmful effect of deforestation.

Subsequently a tree plantation drive was also undertaken by the students and Assam Rifles personnel. The aim of conducting the completion was to highlight the importance of forest and ill effects of deforestation which is destroying flora and fauna of Manipur.

Chassad Battalion of 10 Sector Assam Rifles under aegis of HQ IGAR (South) conducted a medical camp at Khangpat Centre, Kamjong district on 05 July 2019. The camp was organized under “Assam Rifles Civic Action Programme 2019-2020”. A total of 73 patients were examined by a team of doctor and trained Para-medical staff for various ailments and free medicines were provided to all during the camp.

The aim of the camp was to provide free medical treatment and consultation to the villagers of Khangpat Centre and nearby villages of Kamjong district where medical facilities are not available due to its remote location and proximity to the Indo-Myanmar border. Apart from providing medical assistance and medicines, the information on hygiene, sanitation and awareness in life style diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes etc was given to the villagers. The medical camp included lecture and demonstration on measures to ward off any likely-hood of seasonal diseases due to mosquitoes in the monsoon season.

The villagers appreciated the efforts made by Assam Rifles and expressed their heartfelt gratitude for bringing much needed medical assistance in remote areas.
