Kiren Rijiju, Baichung Bhutia flag off Delhi leg of Op-Blue Freedom

@KirenRijiju
Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju and former India football captain Baichung Bhutia flagged off the Delhi leg of Op-Blue Freedom yesterday. This is an initiative in which a group of armed forces veterans train sports enthusiasts in survival training and self-defence. Op-Blue Freedom is a nation-wide adaptive scuba diving programme for people with disabilities as well as the able bodied. 

After the success of the Chandigarh leg, the group of eight veterans, including from the elite special forces of PARA regiment and MARCO, dived yesterday at SPM Swimming Pool Complex in Delhi.


The dive sessions for civilians will be kept open from August 22-25, from 9 am-5pm, for the civilians. The program aims to train adventure enthusiasts in special forces skills like survival techniques, emergency first response skills, unarmed combat, endurance and fitness.
