Quami Bhavna is a unique initiative of the District Administration wherein the District Magistrate visits the remote locations and interacts with Army personnel, officers and stays with them to discuss the peace and development interventions.
Continuing this initiative, the Deputy Commissioner spent one night with the army Jawans and officers at Army Campus Palma and discussed varied issues.
The officer appreciated the army for their concern towards saving and increasing the precious green wealth in the district and urged upon them to continue such efforts in the larger public interest.
The Deputy Commissioner said that the initiative will increase the forest cover of the district and will also prove helpful in mitigating the ill effects of climate change and global warming.
