575 Youth From Jammu And Kashmir Join Indian Army

Srinagar: 575 youth, hailing from different parts of Jammu and Kashmir, were on Saturday inducted in the India Army. The new recruits for the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry were inducted at the passing out parade in Srinagar on Saturday.
The fresh recruits said that they were ready to serve the motherland and would not refrain even from sacrificing their lives in the line of duty. They also expressed pride over the fact that they were now part of the Indian Army.
Family members of the new soldiers of the Indian Army also said that it was a matter of pride for them.
The Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry came into existence in 1947 in a bid to check the infiltrators.
The induction of the youth into the Army comes at a time when Jammu and Kashmir is undergoing a transition, following the abrogation of Article 370, which provided special status to the region.
