PM meets Chiefs of Armed Forces

In a significant development, the Chiefs of the Army, Navy and the Air Force met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh yesterday and apprised him of the state of defence preparedness.

In the wake of reports of a military build-up across the borders in Pakistan, the PM took stock of the possible conventional military threat situations and the counter- measures that the three armed forces had put in place along the borders.

Though this meeting between the PM and the Services chiefs is described as routine, it assumed significance amid reports that there had been a build-up of Pakistani troops on Indo-Pak borders and the news that India also had moved its troops to the frontline positions.
