New Delhi: Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat on Sunday said actions would be taken against those soldiers who are posting their grievances on social media.
“A few colleagues are using social media in order to draw the attention of the media to their problems. It affects the morale of the jawans,” the Army chief said in his Army Day address here.
He warned, “You can be held guilty of a crime and you can be punished too.”
Controversy erupted after a BSF personnel who was identified as Tej Bahadur Yadav, posted a video alleging that near starvation diet served to them at the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
In the video, the jawan alleged: “We only get a ‘parantha’ and tea during breakfast. The food is served without any pickle or vegetables.”
“For lunch, we only get pulses which only have turmeric and salt and roti,” he said.
Yadav alleged that jawans sometimes go to bed on an empty stomach.
The videos have gone viral on the social media.
