Jammu: Many women turn up for BSF recruitment drive


Jammu (Jammu and Kashmir): Scores of women turned up in Jammu for a recruitment drive of the Border Security Force (BSF) on Saturday.

This is the first recruitment drive organised by the BSF in Jammu and Kashmir after it became a union territory.

“It is my childhood dream to join the BSF. My family members have supported my decision. I want girls to be treated equally in all spheres of life,” said a candidate.

“I was a National Cadet Corps (NCC) cadet and have been practising very hard to get clear the recruitment process. It is my dream to serve the nation. I have cleared my running test and I am hopeful of my selection,” said Lovely, another candidate.

To be recruited to the BSF, the candidates have to pass a physical endurance test and a Physical Efficiency Test (PET).

The BSF commenced its recruitment drive from November 16 in several parts of Jammu and Kashmir. (ANI)
