Himachal Pradesh CM flags off ITBP mountaineering expedition
The 40-day expedition will summit at the Manirang Peak at a height of 20630 feet from the sea level in the Lahaul and Spiti district.
Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur today flagged off a northern frontier level mountaineering expedition from the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) sector headquarters at Taradevi in Shimla today.
Speaking on the occasion, Thakur said such expeditions train the force personnel to face uncertain and grievous circumstances with accountability and initiative besides developing leadership, affinity, discipline and the spirit of self-confidence in them.
The chief minister appreciated the rescue operations conducted recently by the ITBP in Nagasti, Sangla valley and the Poorvani Jhool area of district Kinnaur.
