This plan was revealed by Major General Shyam Srivastava, additional director general, NCC, West Bengal and Sikkim Directorate, at a ceremony on Friday that was attended by NCC director general Lt Gen Aniruddha Chakravarty. The DG is on a maiden visit to this directorate and also visited IIT, Kharagpur, a couple of days ago where an advanced training course was being organized for cadets who wish to appear for civil services and other competitive examinations.
Lt Gen Chakravarty lauded the efforts of the NCC is the state and said that pledging of eyes is the ultimate donation that a person can make as it helps a visually challenged person see the world. Among those who pledged their eyes were the cadets, their family members and people at large. A cultural programme was organized by visually challenged youth from the Bhartendu Andh Ashram during the day. A presentation was also made to clear the myths associated with eye donation.
