BSF jawan video | Tej Bahadur's mother comes in support of him, says he raised the issue for fellow soldiers

The family of BSF jawan who alleged that poor quality food is served to troops comes in support of their son. Rubbishing BSF’s allegations about jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav's previous records of indiscipline and intoxication, his mother said, “He has problems related to food. He raised the issue for fellow soldiers. No mistake of my son.”

Tej Bahadur through a series of videos on social media had depicted the condition of BSF Jawans, mainly about the kind of food they are getting after their duty.

In the video, Yadav, who is deployed along the Indo-Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir, had alleged that troops are served bad quality food and even have to go "empty stomach" at times, prompting the border guarding force to initiate an inquiry.

Not only this, Yadav had also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a fair probe into the matter.

Home Ministry stand

Home Minister soon after watching the video wrote, “I have seen a video regarding a BSF jawan plight. I have asked the HS to immediately seek a report from BSF and take appropriate action.”

BSF stand

Taking cognisance of the video, BSF tweeted from its handle that an inquiry has been ordered.

“He has 4 bad entries in 20 years of service, hence, didn’t get promoted which can because of frustration,” said MDS Mann, DIG BSF. “If any of his allegations are found true we will certainly initiate action against the defaulters,” he added.
