Lt Gen N K Singh, AVSM, VSM, General Officer Commanding 3 Corps visited Aizawl on 16 Feb. He reviewed the security situation in the state and the arrangements for border guarding in light of its geo-strategic importance. He was briefed at the HQ Mizoram Range Assam Rifles, and also interacted with HE Lt Gen MM Lakhera, the Governor. The General is of the opinion that “Mizoram is a model for peace and development in the North East.” This is his third visit to the state in his present appointment, but he has served here as a young Major earlier. “It is his love and fascination for Mizoram that has brought him back for the third time in the last six months”, our sources said.
The General also took time out of his busy schedule to meet veterans and ex servicemen from Mizoram. Being an accomplished soldier, this visit by the GOC has bolstered the morale of Assam Rifles troops in Mizoram and will also further strengthen the bonds between the people of Mizoram and Assam Rifles.
