    Commander of the Army Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, making an inspection visit to the construction site of the new Defence Headquarters complex at Akuregoda on Tuesday (17) afternoon inquired into the status quo of its completion of the Army blocks (6 & 7) and the possibility for the Army to move in there as early as possible.

    Taking a firsthand account of its almost completed sections, the Army Chief, together with the new Defence Headquarters’ Project Director, Air Vice Marshal Roshan Pathirage walked around the premises in the company of Major General Kumudu Perera, Deputy Chief of Staff, Director General General Staff of the Army, Quarter Master General, Master General Ordnance, Director General Real Estate and Quartering, General Officer Commanding 14 Division and a few more Officers, engaged in the construction.
