Children from Kashmir Valley on Bharat Darshan

New Delhi: November 5,2012

One group of 18 girls and another group of 20 boys from Kashmir called on Shri R.P.N.Singh, Minister of State for Home Affairs here today. These two groups of children are part of 6 tours of boys and girls during this financial year under Bharat Darshan tours from J&K being organized by Border Security Force (BSF).

Out of 6 Bharat Darshan tours, 4 for Kashmir children (2 each of girls and boys) and 2 for Jammu children (one each for girls and boys) are planned by BSF under this project. Two groups of Jammu region had competed their visits during early October, 2012 and two groups from Kashmir are presently on visit from October 28 to November 08, 2012. The remaining two tours from Kashmir, one each for girls and boys are planned during next month.

Most of these children from Kashmir valley had crossed the Banihal tunnel for the first time. During the tour, they had an opportunity to ride Metro, visit Appu Ghar, Taj Mahal, India Gate and other parts of the country.

Bharat Darshan tours were started in the year 1999-2000 by the BSF by providing dresses, travel expenses, boarding & lodging to the children from the State. The number of groups till date has reached at 39 for 1212 children including 111 girls. Under this project, young children in the age group of 10-16 years hailing from remote areas of the state are selected by BSF with the help of village heads, school teachers and other local agencies. These children are exposed to the historical, cultural and social profile of the country and the progress made in industrial, technological and scientific fields. These tours are found to be having a long lasting impact on the children, parents and others in their areas.

Special Director BSF Shri Arvind Ranjan and senior officers of MHA and BSF were also present.
