After the soldier Tej Bahadur Yadav posted few videos about the terrible quality of food being served to the BSF Jawans, his post has gone viral and getting huge attentions of media along with government’s and sportspersons. People are constantly expressing their views on social media and this has become the most-discussed topic of the day.
While home minister Rajnath Singh ordered an inquiry into the matter, BSF said the Jawan is alcoholic and offender.
I have seen a video regarding a BSF jawan’s plight. I have asked the HS to immediately seek a report from the BSF & take appropriate action.

Following the video went viral; the soldier has also been shifted from the Line of Control to the headquarters of his 29 battalion in Poonch.
“We only get a ‘parantha’ and tea as breakfast and this is without any pickle or vegetables… we slog for 11 hours and at times we have to stand throughout the duty hours. For lunch, we get ‘dal’ (pulses) which only has ‘haldi’ (turmeric) and salt… with roti. This is the quality of the food we get… how can a jawan do his duty? I request the Prime Minister to get this probed… no one shows our plight,” Yadav said in the video.
However, he has received tremendous support from the famed sports stars of the county. Here’s how they react on the Jawan’s video:
