New Delhi, Apr 25 (UNI) As many as 671 NCC cadets from Jammu and Kashmir are taking part in the ongoing special 12-day national integration camp here.

The camp, which began on April 19, is being attended by 815 cadets, including girls, from various NCC directorates.

The special camp has been essentially organised for the youth of backward areas from Jammu and Kashmir with an aim to encourage and push them into the national mainstream.

This would also help the cadets of the state get a first hand exposure to the progress of the country and various opportunities available to them.

Addressing the cadets, Deputy National Security Advisor Shekhar Dutt called upon the youth to think positively as it was the key to success.

He said the youth must endeavour thoughts into action and work towards improving the future of the nation.

Quoting former President A P J Abdul Kalam, Mr Dutt said the youth should dream for the uplift of the country. ''Dreams only give you the ability to think positively,'' he added.

The camp would conclude on April 30.
