BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, who had complained about food served in the army, was dismissed from service on Wednesday.

The footage showed the 80 Battalion BSF constable complaining about the poor quality of food served to them.

The incident had triggered a big national debate as many argued that the move was ‘out of line’ and an act of insubordination. However, many sympathised with the jawan and slammed the government and the army for not paying due respect to the jawans who risk their lives at the border.

After months of enquiry and counter-allegations, Yadav was dismissed from service by the Summary Security Force Court (SSFC) at Samba.

Soon after the news broke, it created another wave on the social media. Many took to Twitter to share their opinion on the issue. While many said that the decision was harsh and not right arguing that “there is no place for poor and honest people” complaining about their distress, few others lambasted the jawan and said he got what he deserved. Many people also suggested that even if his move was not ‘right’ the motif behind his actions were legitimate thus the BSF should have dealt with it in a better way.

Here’s how Twitterati reacted to Yadav’s dismissal:

BSF spokesperson said Yadav has been found guilty of committing an act prejudicial to good order and discipline of the force in which he made false allegations on social media regarding the quality of food and did not adhere to formal grievance redressal mechanism of the force.
