New armed forces preparatory institute to come up in Hoshiarpur

Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday virtually laid the foundation stone of Sardar Bahadur Amin Chand Soni Armed Forces Preparatory Institute at village Bajwara, Hoshiarpur, to facilitate more youth from the state to take up defence services as a career.

This ambitious project will be executed at a cost of Rs.27 crore over an area of 12.75 acres by the PWD (B&R) department and would be completed by the end of 2021. The upcoming institute would impart training to 270 candidates per year.

The Chief Minister said this new armed forces preparatory institute would be instrumental in realizing the dreams of Punjab’s young sons and daughters to join the armed forces. At a time when women pilot officers are flying the Rafale and helicopters, and are actively involved in every field of the armed forces, the day will soon come when girls in India will be part of the fighting force like their counterparts in other countries, he added.

Ambika, on her part, thanked the Captain Amarinder government for its help in setting up the institution that could become a modern training ground for youth from Punjab to join the armed forces.
