The Governor, who is the Patron of the J&K State Bharat Scouts and Guides, was interacting with a large group of Scouts and Guides who, along with the functionaries of the J&K State Bharat Scouts and Guides, called on him at Raj Bhavan here today, in connection with their Annual Flag Day.

Describing celebration of the Annual Flag Day as a very important event, the Governor congratulated all the functionaries of the J&K State Bharat Scouts and Guides and the Scouts, Guides, Rovers, Rangers and Bulbuls on this happy occasion.

He observed that scouting and guiding helps in character building and promoting the spirit of camaraderie and brotherhood which is of vital importance for sustaining the unity and integrity of the country.
The Governor called for the systematic strengthening of movements involving the youth, particularly Scouts and Guides, National Cadet Corps and Red Cross and enhanced focus on sports activities by the educational institutions for securing the balanced and holistic development of the future generations.
The Governor and the First Lady made a contribution to the Annual Flag Day Fund and wished the Scouts and Guides high success in their mission.
