IANS  |  New Delhi 

Vice President Hamid Ansari Monday called for maintaining communal harmony and national integration in the country.

A delegation of National Foundation for Communal Harmony (NFCH) met Ansari here as part of the communal harmony campaign and fund raising week.

The group comprised NFCH secretary Ashok Sajjanhar and five children - two each from Assam and Jammu & Kashmir, and one from Maharashtra.

"The vice president interacted with the delegation and called for maintaining communal harmony and national integration in the country," said an official statement.

The campaign is observed every year from Nov 19-25 to raise funds for rehabilitation of child victims of communal, caste, ethnic violence and promotion of national integration.
