New Delhi: Army Chief General Bikram Singh on Thursday visited the Bhatinda-based 10 Corps and reviewed measures to improve operational readiness of troops and their training.
He was accompanied by South Western Army Commander Lt Gen Gyan Bhushan and was briefed by Corps Commander Lt Gen Sanjeev Anand on the operational preparedness of troops in the area.
