Work for nation-building, Ansari tells NCC cadets



New Delhi: Vice President Hamid Ansari on Saturday said the country has not been able to utilise the full potential of the youth and called upon the National Cadet Corps (NCC) students to play a vital role in nation-building.

The Vice President was addressing the cadets after inaugurating the NCC Republic Day Camp 2010 here today.

Ansari said NCC cadets hailing from different parts of the country with different linguistic and religious backgrounds represent a mini India.

The Vice president was presented a guard of honour by NCC cadets from its three wings -- Army, Navy and Air Force -- at the camp.

1900 cadets including boys and girls drawn from all the states and Union Territories are participating in the camp and a selected few will represent the NCC in the Republic Day parade on Rajpath on January 26.
