Motorbike expedition to Ladakh

Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas R P N Singh today flagged off a motorbike expedition to Ladakh.

The expedition—Peaks of Friendship—is being sponsored by Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), the country’s largest oil marketing firm.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Singh appreciated the efforts of the Pathfinders, the organisers, in embarking on an expedition which promises to make a difference to the people living in remote areas.

"The fact that Indian Oil, the leader in the downstream petroleum sector is sponsoring this expedition is a proof and an eloquent testimony to our commitment to people living in remote locations," the Minister said.

IOC has been sponsoring the expedition since the year 1995, IOC Chairman R S Butola said, adding it will continue to extend its support in the future as well.

IOC Director (HR) Sudhir Bhalla was also present at the flag off ceremony.
