Army chief warns action against Jawans using social media for grievances


New Delhi, Jan 15:  Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Sunday told soldiers not to share their grievances through social media.

Addressing the Army Day function, he said: “A few colleagues are using social media to share their problems. It affects the morale of the jawans and thereby the army.”

“You can be held guilty of doing a crime for what you have done and invite punishment,” he warned.

The General went on: “We have the capacity to tackle cyber attacks, yet, we have to be careful against the enemy elements on social media, and also ask our families to be alert about it.”

Earlier on Friday, Rawat initiated a new Grievance Redressal system through which complaints would be filed and will reach him directly and the identity of the complainant will be kept secret.

This came after a Jawan from Border Security Force (BSF) and Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) posted their videos expressing their grievances.
