Bahadur further had said during his dismissal that not all Army officers are corrupt. “I am not saying all Army officers are corrupt, some are really concerned but 50 per cent of officers responsible for poor food conditions,”
“I was dismissed from the BSF, but I still have the proof with me about the video I had posted on the poor quality of the food. I am yet to get justice and I will take this matter to the High Court, as I have faith in the system,” Yadav told
“It is saddening, but if this is what I get for saying the truth, then what can be done. I’m not saying that all army officers are corrupt, some are really concerned, but at least 50 percent of officers are responsible for the poor food conditions,” he added.
