Poonch (J-K), Jan 23 (ANI): A motorcycle expedition was flagged off by Major General R.S. Pradhan of the 25 Division in Poonch District here on Friday.
The expedition comprised four teams with six motorcycles each. Their journey will cover a distance of 13,600 kilometres.
The expedition was organized to acquaint motorcyclists with sites pertinent to the history of prior artillery regiments, where they came off with honours.
"They are the parts of the same tree. In the absence of artillery, infantry can't work and thus we can say that in order to win a war, artillery and infantry both should work together as one body," said Major General Pradhan.
"The soldiers would carry a message from Poonch to Nasik about the country's progress," he added.
About the role of artillery in the Kargil war, he said that the war was very significant, and the role of artillery couldn't be expressed in words.
He further said that the limitations of seize-fire are known to all, and whenever it has been disobeyed the Indian Army has given an appropriate response.
The soldiers will reach Nasik on February 5. (ANI)
