Sacked for complaining about food, EX-BSF man to contest LS polls against Modi

Tej Bahadur Yadav, who was sacked from BSF after he uploaded a video complaining of bad quality food being served to the forces has said he will contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Varanasi against Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Yadav and ex BSF man and a resident of Rewari in Haryana, claimed he was approached by several parties to join them but chose to contest as an independent candidate. He said by contesting the elections he would raise the issue of corruption in the forces.

“My motive is not to win or lose. It is to highlight how this government has failed the forces, especially paramilitary forces. PM Modi seeks votes in the name of our jawans but has done nothing for them. Our paramilitary jawans (CRPF men) killed recently in Pulwama were not even given martyr status by this government,” he was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

Yadav was dismissed from BSF in 2017 after he took to social media to complain about the quality of food being served to the forces in Jammu and Kashmir.

He has challenged his dismissal in the court and the case is in the trial stage. “My dismissal was completely wrong. They claimed I am being removed for indiscipline.

At least the government could have bothered to address the corruption issue I had raised. Its actions to suppress my voice only shows this government is a party to large scale corruption in the forces,” Yadav said.

He said he would soon go to Varanasi and start campaigning with the help of ex-servicemen and farmers. “We are building our strategy to target maximum voters,” he said.
