A BSF clerk has posted a video on Facebook in which he has alleged that liquor meant for its personnel was being sold to outsiders and claimed that despite his complaint in this regard no action has been taken. As the video by the clerk, Navratan Choudhary, went viral, BSF officials said it would order inquiry into his complaint.
The claim comes close on the heels of a BSF jawan's video who alleged poor quality food was being served to the personnel in 29 Battalion in Poonch.
Choudhary, a resident of Bikaner in Rajasthan, who works at 150 battalion of Border Security Force at Gandhidham in Kutch district of Gujarat, uploaded the video on January 26, in which a civilian is seen carrying liquor bottles.
Gujarat is a dry state, where sale and consumption of liquor is prohibited. In the video, Choudhary said, "Our Constitution provides equal rights to all, but we (BSF jawans) are deprived from that as we cannot even ask for good food. If someone complains about this by mistake, he is treated as if he has committed a very big offence, as if we have asked for a fortune and not food."
"Everybody wants corruption to end, but nobody is coming forward to end this. Every time only a whistle blower is punished and all rules are applied against him only, but nothing happens to the corrupt," he alleged.
