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.

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.

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.

This mountaineering expedition will go a long way in carrying the message of environmental awareness and cleanliness, he added.

The chief minister appreciated the rescue operations conducted recently by the ITBP in Nagasti, Sangla valley and the Poorvani Jhool area of district Kinnaur.

He lauded the role of ITBP in the protection of the Indo-China border and also working towards the upliftment of local border population.

Inspector General HS Goraya said the ITBP had succeeded in hoisting the national and force flags on more than 200 peaks.
