On the personnel
initiative of DG, SSB Mrs. Archana Ramasundaram, it is first time that
the Officers of the rank of Dy. Commandant and above posted in various
Sector Headquarters, Frontier Headquarters and Force Headquarter New
Delhi are going to Border Out Posts (BOPs) in far-flung areas on
Indo-Nepal & Indo-Bhutan Borders and to J&K and Naxal affected areas to
celebrate 68th Republic Day with National fervor.
On this occasion the officers will also convey the message of DG, SSB to
the force personnel and public present in the functions. The DG also
said that this occasion will help in establishing a healthy relationship
with the border population. This national festival shall be celebrated
in a manner that better relationship could be ensured between border
population and SSB to strengthen integrity and unity of the country.
The idea behind this initiative is also to establish direct
communication between the officers of headquarters and the jawans posted
at remote locations on the borders. This endeavor will also ensure that
senior officers appreciate the problems of jawans and instill confidence
in them that the DG and the FHQ is sensitive towards their problems and
making all out efforts to provide them better facilities.
On this occasion the DG, SSB has also called upon the force personnel to
follow the motto of SSB “Service, Security & Brotherhood” and strive for
security of the border population and keep the national flag flying high
and achieve new heights.
