The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Thursday said that Constable Jeet Singh highlighting of an alleged discrimination between the armed forces and paramilitary forces personnel should not be seen as a complaint, but as an aspiration.
"He has not complained about any organisation, only voiced his aspiration," a CPRF press note said
Soon after the video of Border Security Force constable Tej Bahadur Singh complaining of the poor quality of food served to BSF soldiers went viral, Jeet Singh, took to social media to appeal to the nation and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give equal facilities to personnel employed with the paramilitary force just like the Indian Armed Forces.
The video says that despite the fact the CRPF does a commendable job offering round-the-clock security to public and business establishments, and high-profile personalities, as well as conducting poll duty, there's a "discrimination" between the services and facilities offered to personnel employed by the Indian Army and that by the CRPF.
