BSF soldier, Tej Bahadur Yadav, who had sensationally complained of poor food quality has now been expelled from the force on the charges of causing disrepute to the paramilitary force.
According to ABP News, the court of inquiry looking into his Yadav’s complaints, found him guilty of damaging the reputation of the BSF.
Yadav had on 9 January posted a video on Facebook showing a meal box comprising a watery soup-like dal, which he said had only turmeric and salt and a burnt chapatti.
He had said that this is what jawans were served at mealtime on duty at places including the Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan and that jawans often went to bed on empty stomach.
Pursuant to the video going viral on the social media, the Prime Minister’s Office had sought a detailed factual report on it from the Union Home Ministry and BSF.
A PIL was also filed in the Delhi High Court seeking a direction to the government to depute higher officers to supervise cooking of proper healthy food and its distribution.
