Ex-CM’s Daughter Joins Army Medical Corps, Continues Community Tradition
The daughter of Uttarakhand’s former chief minister and BJP MP Ramesh Pokhriyal has joined the Army Medical Corps. The proud father took to his Twitter account to post a picture of Capt Dr Shreyasi Nishank in her military uniform. Capt Shreyasi is to be posted at Military Hospital at Roorkie in Haridwar district, DNA reported.
The BJP leader wrote in Hindi: “My companions, I am very proud to share this with you all that my daughter Dr Shreyasi Nishank, who has continued the military tradition of Uttarakhand today, has duly joined the army with the Army Medical Corps.”
Daughters equal to sons
Pokhriyal further wrote about his daughter’s posting and that daughters are equal to sons. “I am happy that Shreyasi decided to go to the Army and complete the studies of MBBS from the Himalayan Medical Colleges and serve the country. Today the daughters are no less than men in any field, and our duty is that we work for our daughters to get equal education for sons,” he added.
The former CM has also mentioned how important it is for parents to take the responsibility to provide daughters the best education they deserve. The BJP leader happened to find out about his daughter’s interest in joining the Army during a trek to Kedarnath.
More power to you Dr Shreyasi!
