CHANDIGARH, 12 Jan: After BSF jawan exposed food quality served to paramilitary personnel his wife spoke out in defence of her husband on Wednesday.

“If my husband was mentally unstable or indisciplined, why was he given a rifle by the BSF to guard the country’s border in crucial areas?” asked Sharmila Yadav, wife of Tej Bahadur Yadav.

My husband’s problem is only that he can not tolerate injustice, for which he has suffered during his service tenure,” Sharmila Yadav, wife of Tej Bahadur Yadav, told TOI on Wednesday.

The video which went viral was seen by around 90 lakh and around 4.4 lakh have shared it on social media sites in three days.

MHA has ordered a probe into the allegations, but BSF IG D KUpadhyaya had asserted on Tuesday that Yadav had in the past been accused of insubordination and intoxication and had faced a court martial.

Sharmila alleged that her husband had been punished in the past by the BSF for speaking the truth. “BSF is a disciplined force and in the armed forces even a small mistake is intolerable. If he had such a bad record, why was he retained ” she asked.

Sharmila, who stays with her 17-year-old son, Rohit, expressed her husband wanted to continue for another five years in the BSF, but officers compelled him to take voluntary retirement after completing 20 years of service on January 31.

His VRS application has been approved. “My husband had discussed with me many times the poor quality of food served to them but I was stunned when he posted the video. I told him that he may be in trouble.” She said many people had questioned the authenticity of the video and the social media account. “Since I know Tej’s Facebook password, I logged in to clarify that it was genuine account and post.”

Tej is the youngest of five brothers. One of his brothers is also in the BSF service and another serves in the Gujarat police. Sharmila works in a private company. Son Rohit recently completed his Class XII exam and is preparing for engineering entrance exams.
