NCC days taught me valuable lessons: Modi

Walking down memory lane, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday recalled his days as a young NCC cadet, saying his stint there taught him a lot, including values such as patriotism and way
of life.

Modi said that the annual National Cadet Corps Republic Day Camp was like a mini India and said unity in diversity is the country’s beauty and strength. “My childhood memories have been refreshed because I have also been an NCC cadet,” he said addressing the PM’s Rally at the NCC’s annual Republic Day Camp here. He said it was a privilege for him to come back to an atmosphere where he learnt the patriotism and way of life.

Modi also tweeted a picture of him as a young NCC cadet. The Prime Minister, however, rued that he was never selected to come to Delhi for the Annual Camp.

He added that a boy cadet from his school who had come to Delhi for the parade had turned into an instant celebrity at his school. The Prime Minister fondly remembered his NCC days, added that Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Minister of State for Defence Rao Inderjit Singh, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, BJP’s Delhi chief ministerial candidate Kiran Bedi and MP Jaya Bachchan were all NCC cadets.
