He also informed that 28 types of new vehicles have been provided to the ITBP, which has been allotted a budget of Rs 7,223 crore, Zee News reported.
Talking about the Indian culture, he said, “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, which gives the message of world peace, but, at the same time, our culture also gives us the mantra to fully empower ourselves for every kind of adverse situation created by the enemy.”
The @ITBP_Official does not just man our borders, but also ensures Internal Security of our nation, and thereby protects its economic interests.
