The Border Security Force (BSF) has dismissed the constable Tej Bahadur Yadav who allegedly complained about the food being served to the army cadets. He allegedly made a video condemning the force for the poor quality of food served, often forced to sleep empty stomach and conditions in which army-men were made to live in. He was dismissed after an internal inquiry found him guilty of making deceitful charges and it was as per the Border Security Force Act that is applicable to all serving in paramilitary force.
Yadav can appeal against the verdict within three months. It is also said that he was already facing several in-disciplinary charges like disobedience by going on hunger strike, carrying mobile phone on duty, alcohol abuse, using subversive language, habitual absenteeism and acting in a manner detrimental to a formal directive.
The BSF had instructed its commanders to ensure that constables refrain from carrying their cellphones while on duty. He dodged this order and still carried the phone and eventually made a video. He had requested for Voluntary retirement that plea was rejected and put on hold until the court finalizes its verdict. He also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to support him, and said he was being targeted for his earlier videos that have uncovered the BSF’s apparent venality.
