Two Army Staff officers who received training at the same military camp in India met after many years as political leaders today.

They did not meet to discuss politics.

One of the two friends is the incumbent President of Sri Lanka, Gotabaya Rajapaksa. The other one is the Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways of India, Dr. V. K. Singh.

Around 15 other military officers from the same military training joined the two dignitaries. The gathering turned out to be a walk down the memory lane with cherished reminiscences.

Most of these army personnel served in Sri Lanka as members of Indian Peace Keeping Force. They bade adieu as old friends.
