He wrote in Hindi: “My companions, I am very proud to share this with you all that my daughter Dr Shreyasi Nishank, who has continued the military tradition of Uttarakhand today, has duly joined the army with the Army Medical Corps. I am happy that Shreyasi decided to go to the Army and complete the studies of MBBS from the Himalayan Medical Colleges and serve the country. Today the daughters are no less than men in any field, and our duty is that we work for our daughters to get equal education for sons.”
