New Delhi: Army Chief General V K Singh on Friday
met Home Minister P Chidambaram and is understood to have
discussed training and operational strategies with him in the
wake of increasing naxal attacks in the country.
Singh was closeted with Chidambaram for about 20 minutes
at the Home Minister`s North block office here.

The Army chief is supposed to have briefed Chidambaram on
the training and operational strategies, sources said.

Singh, however, did not disclose what transpired at the
meeting and said it was just a courtesy call.

He also refused to comment on yesterday`s Armed Forces
Tribunal order which indicted a former Lieutenant General for
showing bias towards a Brigadier playing down his achievements
and for falsifying accounts of battles during the 1999 Kargil
conflict.
"I was away. I have not read the report," Singh told
reporters.
