Imphal April 23,
Under the theme of this year’s World Earth Day “Protect Our Species”, 9 Sector Assam Rifles under the aegis of IGAR(South) organised various activities on 22 April to acknowledge the role of earth which sustains and nurtures all living beings.
Mantripukhri Battalion celebrated the World Earth day at Sawombung High School wherein over 60 students and teachers of the school enthusiastically participated in the event. An interactive lecture was delivered by teachers and personnel from Assam Rifles on “Environment Upkeep, Maintenance and Upgradation”. The lecture was a progressive step towards spreading awareness and an initiative to educate the future generation of the State. The event concluded with tea and refreshments for all.
The series of activities by the units of the Sector received an overwhelming response from the local populace. The staff of both the schools expressed profound gratitude and further appreciated the righteous gesture of the Assam Rifles in putting the environmental issues in spotlight and recurrently taking initiatives to foster the environment friendly measures in the state.
