With an objective to make people remember the valour and sacrifices of our soldiers, eight dummy war tanks will be installed at Akola, Barshitakli, Akot in Akola district and Malegaon and Risod in Washim district.
The installation of the war tanks will also add to the beautification of the city and will also provide a symbol of the courage of our brave countrymen and their relentless service for youths to see and take inspiration from them.
After initiating beautification of Akola Railway Station and installing electric lighting at the railway station, these dummy war tanks will became an added attraction for the citizens.
These eight tanks have been sanctioned by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh after continuous persuasion of Union Minister of State Sanjay Dhotre. These tanks will soon be in Akola and Washim districts. Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Union Minister of State for Defence Shripad Naik assisted in the process of sanctioning of dummy war tanks for display.
These symbols of our Army men’s bravery will surely inspire children.
