New Delhi, Dec 21 (IBNS): A group of 18 students from Bishnupur district of Manipur attending the National Integration Tour, organised by the 42nd Assam Rifles, called on the Minister of State for Home Affairs, Kiren Rijiju in New Delhi, on Thursday.
The team is on a visit to the National capital and Agra.
Speaking on the occasion, Rijiju complimented the Assam Rifles for organizing the National Integration Tour under Operation Sadbhavna, giving children from the remote region an opportunity to visit the national capital and other historic cities to discover the grandeur of India.
While interacting with the students, Rijiju said that the National Integration Tour is a good initiative taken by the Assam Rifles since this is the first visit outside the state for a majority of these students.

The aim of the National Integration Tour is to promote harmony and awareness. The tour is aimed at integrating the students with the nation and promoting concept of unity in diversity.
