General Bikram Singh, who took over as the 25th Chief of the Indian Army yesterday, visited the Amar Jawan Jyoti in New Delhi at 9:30 this morning. After laying a wreath at the memorial for Indian soldiers, he proceeded towards the lawns of the South Block where he was given a guard of honour. General Bikram Singh succeeds General VK Singh, whose 26-month tenure was mired in controversies. General VK Singh retired from the top army post yesterday. "Better to leave behind what happened in the past," the new army chief said while talking to reporters at the South Block today. "When you drive a car, you look at the windscreen not at the rearview mirror," he added.
