A couple of days back, a jawan named Tej Bahadur Yadav, who works for the Border Security Force (BSF), had uploaded a video wherein he ‘went on record’ stating that the troops were being served with bad quality food. The jawan also alleged corruption by senior officers as the major reason behind the sub-standard rations served to the soldiers. He also added that, sometimes, they had to go to bed on an empty stomach. Needless to say that the moment it became viral, it started garnering feedback from all over.
Nana Patekar, who had earlier visited the BSF forces at the International Borders (IB) in Hiranagar, Kathua, recently had a word with Kamal Nayan Choubey (IG-BSF) regarding the issue. Speaking about the meeting, Nana Patekar said that Kamal Nayan sir had assured him that nothing of that sort had happened. Nana Patekar added that, the forces took care of us more than their kids, be it the Army, BSF, CRPF or ITBP. He also added that such incidents only demoralised the spirit of our army, BSF and CRPF jawans.
Meanwhile, many other Bollywood celebs took to the social media and voiced out their opinions regarding the same.

We only respect soldiers who are dying at the border, not soldiers who are fighting at the border. https://t.co/S5LBHCGlAX
