The family of the BSF jawan, Tej Bahadur, who has made an allegation that low quality meal was being served to soldiers near the Line of Control (LoC) through online networking posts, on Wednesday, came to support him. They told that Tej Bahadur was just trying to delineate the reality by his demonstration. Even the government accepted that “some issues” were found there after an interim report has been received by the Home Ministry of India.
Wife of the constable, Tej Bahadur Yadav told that the demonstration, her husband gave, was just a reality. He just made a demand for ‘good food’ and ‘roti’ – instead of ‘burnt roti’ and ‘watery pulses’. She also commented that why her husband was not sent for treatment if he had mental problem. He was sent to the border with duty, because he was completely fit. It was a method of switching focus from the burning issue by the BSF organization.
Tej Bahadur’s son included that “it was not wrong” to request ‘good food’ for himself and the also for the soldiers posted on the border. His father has made everybody aware about what wrong has been happening with the soldiers. The people of the country should at least demand for proper justice for the soldiers who have been providing them fearless sleep at night.
Mr. Kiren Rijiju, the Minister of State for Home, told that his ministry had received an ‘interim report’ from the Border Security Force, and commented that there were some issues. He also requested the people and media not to make it a big issue, because it could break the spirit of the jawans.
Mr. Rajnath Singh, the Home Minister of India had observed the video and requested for an ‘appropriate action’ into the occurrence.
Mr. Singh had tweeted, “I have seen a video regarding a BSF jawan’s plight. I have asked the Home Secretary to immediately seek a report from the BSF & take appropriate action”.
It was simply an unexpected incident to the citizen of India that those who are providing ‘ultimate safety’ to the nation – are really sufferer by corruption of their own organization. Those pictures and videos have opened our eyes.
