Kashmiri girls visit Jodhpur as part of Operation Sadbhavna

Jodhpur, Nov 8 : Students from backward areas of Jammu and Kashmir's Noushera tehshil visited Jodhpur on Friday as part of the Indian Army's ''Operation Sadbhavana'' educational tour.

The tour has been organized by 33 Rashtriya Rifles under the aegis of the Uniform Force of the Indian Army's Northern Command.

The army organizes the tour to expose young students to developments taking place in other parts of the country.

During this tour, a group of 23 girl students and two teachers from Kashmir Valley visited Mehrangarh fort, Umaid Bhawan, Chamunda Temple and Mandore garden in the city.

The tour plan includes visit to historical places in Ajmer and Jaisalmer besides Jodhpur.

The delegation will return to Jammu from Jodhpur on Nov 13.

In 1998, the Indian Army launched this operation called ''Operation Sadbhavana'' to win the hearts and minds of the population long ravaged by terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

Through ''Operation Sadbhavana'', the troops of Indian Army's Northern Command extended their mandate and made concerted attempts to apply the healing touch to win over the people by promoting development activities focusing on their basic needs.

''Operation Sadbhavana'' and activities of the state administration were amalgamated harmoniously to generate synergy, with a clear focus to bring a palpable improvement in the quality of life of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
