Army chief warns of action against soldiers using social media to air grievances


Army chief, General Bipin Rawat, on Sunday warned that action will be taken against soldiers, who used social media to air their grievances.

Speaking at the Army Day function the newly appointed chief said, “A few colleagues are using social media to draw the media’s attention to their problems. It affects the morale of the jawans and thereby the army… You can be held guilty of a crime… and get punished.”

Indian army, the BSF and the CRPF have lately come under intense media scrutiny after several soldiers complained of corruption and ill-treatment by their senior in the last few days.
