On the possibilities of charges he might face for the step he took, Meetu Singh Rathore, stated that he has no fear of suspension and has done it for the betterment of the conditions of the fellow jawans. The CRPF ‘whistleblower’ had also taken videos of jawans doing menial jobs by seniors.
Amid controversies following the recent videos by security personnel, complaining about the low quality of food and near starvation they face, Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat, today urged Indian army jawans to raise complaints internally, instead of selecting social media as the platform to outburst their grievances. Addressing the media for the first time the newly appointed Army Chief had asked his troop to directly communicate with him through the ‘suggestion cum grievances’ box, which will be set up soon.
