Much-awaited pre-military training center begins activity in Mangaluru

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Nov 26: An ambitious project of state government, pre-military training center, began functioning in coastal region.

In the districts of Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Uttara Kannada, this center has begun operating from October. The dreams of economically backward class community will be realized through this programme. There was no free facility for people of this community to join military or police departments. The community does not have the financial strength to spend money for training. The centers are opened under the guidance of backward communities’ welfare department.

The duration of training would be four months and will get over in February 2023. There is opportunity for 100 people to get trained in every center. Maximum number of candidates have enrolled themselves in these centers in the three coastal districts.

This programme is the ambitious project of Kota Srinivas Poojary, minister for backward communities. The centers are named behind Veera Rani Abbakka in Dakshina Kannada (DK), Koti Chennaya in Udupi and Hinja Nayak in Uttara Kannada.

All kinds of theory and practical training required for joining the military is imparted in these centers. Retired and currently serving military officers are the trainers. From 6 am to 9 pm theory, physical fitness and martial arts are also taught. Food, accommodation and learning is absolutely free. Preparations are made to open similar centers in Belagavi and Koppal also.

Rashmi S R, officer for backward communities of DK said, “Pre-military training center is opened by the BCM department for the backward communities. In Mangaluru, the center is functioning near KPT. This training will be helpful for youth who aspire to join military through Agnipath Scheme and other military recruitment.”

    This project was possibly conceived before the 'Agnipath' system was introduced. The Central Government is trying to cut down the cost of military, especially pensions etc. So, the idea is to have kind of reservists by giving them (only) four years of tenure. Hope I am wrong, but the young men who will go through the coastal 'pre-military training centre' will not be able to escape the 'Agnipath' system.

    Private people/organisations should start such military like schools for general public to prepare youngsters as people's force/military against any biased administrations or misuse of power.
