PIL Filed In Delhi High Court On BSF Jawan’s Allegations


The Delhi High Court received a PIL filed by Puran Chand Arya, a former central government employee, in the wake of a video posted on Facebook by BSF Jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, claiming corruption among officers and poor working conditions.

The plea was filed for seeking a status report on paramilitary forces after a Border Security Force (BSF) constable alleged that jawans posted near the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir are served meagre and poor quality food.

Based on the fundamental Rights to Equality (Article 14) and Article 21 of the Constitution of India – Right to Life and Personal Liberty, the PIL highlights the allegations about insufficient and bad quality of food provided to Jawans.

It seeks action on the incident so that the morale of the force is not affected and also asks for clarity on ration procurement, food preparation and servings to various categories of officers.
