Kharba Corps solemnly celebrates anniversary

Ambala, Oct 6 (UNI) Born in October 1971 and moulded in war, the ‘Kharga Corps’ is today 46 years old.
With the prospect of war with Pakistan looming ominously, the Corps was raised in Krishna Nagar, West Bengal with an intention of fighting in East Pakistan (which is now Bangladesh).
Pressed into full-fledged action within months of its raising, the Corps proved its mettle in battle, capturing important towns of Khulna, Jessore, Jhenida, Magura, Faridpur and great swathes of territory between the Ganges and Padma Rivers. Subsequently the Corps shifted westwards and its Headquarters is located in Ambala since 1985.
Armed to the teeth with a formidable arsenal, the Kharga Corps is equipped with the most modern tanks, artillery gun systems, and variety of mission oriented arsenals is one of the most potent corps of the Indian Army.

It is called the ‘Kharga Corps’ because of its unique formation sign. A ‘Kharga’ or the ‘Scythe’ symbolises the destruction it can unleash in the battlefield.
The 46th Raising day was celebrated solemnly with a wreath laying by the Corps Commander on the War Memorial in remembrance of martyrs who have made the supreme sacrifice in the face of the enemy.
