Despite the strong warning from Army chief Bipin Rawat on posting grievances on social media, a video of a jawan singing of alleged problem faced by army troop has emerged, The Hindu reported.
The video featured a Sikh soldier singing of unsatisfactory living conditions to a group of colleagues. “It has been 10 months now, I am not getting days off; all the tears have fallen from her eyes. One who is married to us, she feels neither married nor unmarried,” the soldier sings.
The soldier complained that they were given only a pickle and roti while the superior officers were fine dining in star hotels.
At the Army Day Parade in New Delhi on January 15, Rawat had said that “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.”
Meanwhile, Delhi High Court on Monday had refused an urgent hearing on a plea seeking a status report from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) following a BSF soldier’s allegation that troopers posted along the LoC were being served poor quality food.
