Congress leader objects shifting of Army training unit from Shimla to Meerut, writes to Rajnath Singh

Congress leader Anand Sharma has written to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh over the proposed shifting of the headquarters of Army Training Command from Shimla in Himachal Pradesh to Meerut in Uttar Pradesh. In his letter, the Congress leader sought the defense minister's intervention to "retain Army Training Command (ARTRAC) in Shimla." 

"I am given to understand that the logic being extended that there is a shortage of accommodation at Shimla post-merger of DGMT and ARTRAC, lacks substance as adequate infrastructure is available in the adjoining Jutogh cantonment," the letter read.

In the letter to Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Congress leader Anand Sharma also wrote that "there will be huge financial implications for relocating of these big institutions from Shimla to Meerut which will have a negative effect on exchequer amounting to hundreds of crores and will not serve any purpose."
He finally urged the defence minister to cancel the proposal to shift the headquarters of Army Training Command from Shimla to Meerut.
The Indian Army is planning to shift its training command headquarters from Shimla in Himachal Pradesh to Meerut, Uttar Pradesh in a bid to save funds and ensure better connectivity with the Army headquarters. The move is part of the ongoing restructuring that is being carried out at multiple levels by the Army.
