Chandigarh: On Friendship Day, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh became nostalgic and recalled his days in the Indian Army.

Alongside a black-and-white photograph with a friend from his army days, Singh tweeted, "There is no greater bond than the one made in the Indian Army. Grateful to have had the friendship and company of the nation's best. Cheers to the friends that accept you for who you are and always have your back. Happy World Friendship Day."

 

Captain Amarinder Singh served in the 2nd battalion of the Sikh Regiment from 1963 to 1969. Though he left for a short period in between, to take over his family's responsibilities, his love for the Army brought him back as the Indo-Pak war broke out in 1965.

Before him, his father, Lt General Maharaja Yadvinder Singh was in the regiment in 1935 and served as Colonel from 1938 to 1950 and 1950-1971, respectively.
