ITBP band gives a stellar maiden performance
With 16 tunes of martial and Indian music playing, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) gave a stellar performance at the Siri Fort Auditorium, New Delhi. This was the first such concert by the ITBP band. Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju was present as the Chief Guest among other distinguished guests, senior officers, and personnel of the CAPFs and their families on the eve of Holi 2018. The one hour concert was organised by Major Nazir Hussain, VSM Retd.
The concert was a classic mix of traditional military tunes and Bollywood evergreen numbers. Rijiju appreciated the concert and said that such patriotic programmes should be organised by other forces as well in the entire country. The Minister complimented the band for the rendition of the patriotic song "Hum Sarhad ke Sainani", which he said showed the love and commitment of the ITBP jawans for their motherland.
He concluded by greeting the ITBP Director General RK Pachanada for winning the trophy for 'best marching contingent' at this years' Republic Day parade and lauded the contribution of ITBP Band contingent for inspiring tunes for the best show by the marching contingent on Rajpath.
