In connection with Armed Forces Flag Day to be commemorated on 7th December, the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Baramulla, Dr Syed Sehrish Asgar today chaired a meeting of District Level Armed Forces Flag Day Committee (DLAFC), at DC Office Complex here.
At the outset, Zila Sainik Welfare Officer (ZSWO) Baramulla apprised the chair and other members of the committee regarding commemoration of the day. The ZSWO said celebrating Flag Day has become tradition to honour the martyrs of defence forces, soldiers and this day reminds us of the environment in contributing for the welfare of their affected families by donation.
Speaking on the occasion, the DC said that 7th December is observed as the Armed Forces Flag Day to remind all of us to express gratitude towards our soldiers, sailors and airmen of India. She said the day gains more significance as it is the responsibility of the civilian population to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
Dr Sehrish asserted that the need of the hour is to increase the contribution through various means for Ex-Servicemen. She also assured the Zila Sanik Officer that all possible support will be provided from the District Administration.
Additional District Development Commissioner Baramulla, Aijaz Abdullah Saraf, Additional Deputy Commissioner Baramulla, Zahoor Ahmad Raina, Assistant Commissioner Revenue and other concerned officers were present in the meeting.
