Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal on Wednesday flagged off a motorbike expedition from Chandigarh to Leh-Ladakh organised by 25 students of Punjab Technical University (PTU) and Aryans Group of Colleges, Chandigarh at his residence.

Punjab technical education minister Madan Mohan Mittal was the guest of honour, while Aryans Group of Colleges chairman Anshu Kataria presided over the event.

The objectives of the expedition are to project Punjab as an education hub in the neighboring states, spread anti-drugs messages and boost adventure and sports activities among students and faculties.

While praising PTU and Aryans for their initiative, Badal said through this expedition, the students would get a chance to explore the culture of other states where they were going and also highlight the prosperity.
