BJP MP & BCCI Chief Anurag Thakur Becomes First Serving BJP Member Of Parliament To Join Military Force

Anurag Thakur, BJP MP and BCCI President on Friday become the first serving BJP Member of Parliament to join the military force as he gets commissioned into Territorial Army as a regular officer.

The Territorial Army is the second line of defence after the Indian army.

It is composed of volunteers who receive military training for about a month in a year so that in case of an emergency they can be mobilised for the defence of the country.

Thakur made it to the TA after clearing an exam and a personal interview conducted in Chandigarh and training held in Bhopal.

As a regular officer, the Lok Sabha member from Hamirpur in Himachal Pradesh will have to undergo a mandatory training.
