NEW DELHI: Soon after the video of BSF Jawan showed the inferior quality of food served to its personnel, the red-faced BSF issued fresh guidelines for maintaining high quality of food for its personnel along the border.

While the Union Home Ministry also ordered to file a complete report on allegations of substandard food made by a soldier posted along the LoC.

BSF Director-General K.K. Sharma on Wednesday met Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi and submitted a second interim report on the claims made by Tej Bahadur Yadav on a video that was shared on social networking sites.

However, the BSF chief avoided queries after his meeting but the paramilitary force came out with a statement in the evening, announcing six measures for providing quality food for its jawans posted along the border.

“Issues related to diet of jawans, issues of ration purchase procedures and pilferages thereof are the issues of prime concern for any organisation.

“BSF has taken a holistic view of the situation and follow-up process has been swung into action (sic),” the statement said and listed an audit of the system by a team of senior commanding officers.

Among other steps taken by the BSF were chalking out shortcomings of the present process, suggesting procedural and systematic improvements, vigilance for double checks, enhancing formal and informal interactions with jawans and introduction of systemic innovations to ensure cashless transactions in all messes.

In its second interim report, the BSF stated that the ‘daal’ shown in the jawan’s video was uncanned from tinned food ration and the ‘parantha’ was cooked in the unit mess as per procedures followed at high-altitude locations.

After the issue went viral on social media, Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said the government has sent “experts and dietitians to each and every post of the border to ensure that the food quality of the jawans must be as per the norms.”

A final report in this matter is slated to be submitted by the BSF on Thursday.

A PIL has also been filed in Delhi High Court seeking a status report in this matter.

Meanwhile, A CRPF Jawan also shared a video speaking about his issues.The video was uploaded on December 25,2016 by a CRPF Constable G Singh.

In the video, Singh is conveying his message to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the apathy faced in CRPF.

He says ”Our facilities are very different from the Army while we do every job in the country”. The video focuses on better facilities and pay.
