During the meeting, the senior Army officers briefed the Governor about the overall security situation in the respective areas of their responsibility, particularly along International Border in Jammu region and beyond. The Governor discussed with Lt. Gen. Chachra several important issues relating to external security management in the region.
The Governor also discussed with the Western Army Commander certain long pending land issues which required urgent resolution, particularly the relocation of the Army Transit Camp which is thwarting the infrastructure development of the University of Jammu. General Chachra agreed that this matter would be urgently reviewed and, further, to ensure against matters of mutual interest remaining unduly pending, Western Army-Civil Liaison Meetings would now be held at regular intervals.
