Punjab will organise what is being touted as the country’s first Military Literature Festival(MLF) from December 7 to 9 in Chandigarh. This was disclosed by Punjab tourism and culture minister Navjot Singh Sidhuon Friday.


The festival that will have special focus on youth and students from the Tricity will get a chance to interact with the war veterans. “The event is aimed at invoking the feeling of sacrifice, which Punjab had a great history of among today’s youth. Youngsters, therefore, would be a key target audience of the festival, with special programmes designed to reach out to them,’ said Sidhu.

Addressing a press conference, Sidhu said Punjab is home to several decorated soldiers, including Param Vir Chakra awardees and the festival will be an apt and glowing tribute to the grit, courage and fearless determination of the country’s defence personnel, said the minister. Senior advisor to Punjab CM Lt. Gen. T S Shergill said the main event will be preceded by many curtain raisers to build the momentum for the grand finale.
