LAHORE: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa on Friday visited Lahore Garrison.

The COAS was briefed on various operational and training matters of the formation at Corps HQ.

Later, he interacted with vice chancellors, faculty and students of LUMS, FCU, UET, LSE, PU and GCU, says a press release issued by the ISPR.

The COAS appreciated the critical role being played by these premier educational institutions in preparing the future leadership and useful citizens of Pakistan.

He said there was a dire need of human resource development in the fields of education, health, infrastructure/ industry and environment. He emphasised that spread of misinformation by vested interests was not only creating misperceptions but also threatening cohesion in society.

Faculty members and students asked questions during the exhaustive session.
