I qualified the race as I am having my father and family's support. I want to join the Army especially because of less income and family condition. Youths whose father had been serving Indian Army should come and join the rally," said Amir Mugunmer, an aspiring candidate. "Today it is March 26 and Army recruitment rally is going on here. It's a great opportunity for youths to come here and join Indian Army. I am very thankful I got shelter here and ready to serve the country.
