CRPF jawan Jeet Singh sends a message to the nation.

Social media especially Facebook is a very good platform to raise your voice in this era. It is rightly called as the voice of the unheard. If you want the world to listen to you just say it online and all eyes will be on you in no time. A Few days back constable of BSF (Border Security Force), Tej Bahadur Singh send the entire nation into the frenzy by posting a video on popular social networking website Facebook in which he is seen complaining about the poor quality of food provided to them. Inspired by him, CRPF ( Central Reserve Police Force) constable Jeet Singh has taken his cause on the social media. In his emotional video which has gone viral, Jeet Singh takes up the issue of discrimination with CRPF jawans. He can be seen appealing to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and to the nation to provide equal facilities to personnel employed with the paramilitary force just like the Indian Armed Forces.

In the video, Jeet Singh says that despite doing the endless duty of providing security to business and public establishments, VIP’s and at the time of elections, CRPF personals face discrimination when it comes to facilities and services offered to them. There is a vast difference between the facilities offered to them and those employed by the Indian Army.

In his video directly addressed to PM Modi he further complains that CRPF jawans don’t get canteen and medicals facilities, unlike Indian army. Army men enjoy several facilities like OROP (One Rank One Pension) and the stature of Ex-servicemen after retirement. Even their pension facility is stopped. They don’t even get holidays and their duty time is maximum.

He clarifies that they don’t have any problems with Indian army receiving such facilities. They deserve it and should get it. His question is why CRPF personals are not getting it? Why is this discrimination is towards them? He asks what they will do to earn their bread and butter after retirement?

Jeet Singh highlights the duty a CRPF jawan performs. They provide security in every election whether it is Rajya Sabha, Lok Sabha or Gram Panchayat. They also provide security to VVIP’s and VIP’s along with public places like airports and religious shrines such as temples, gurdwaras, and mosques.

Singh also said that government is paying Rs 50,000-60,000 to teachers posted in government schools and colleges. They get a lot of vacations and they spend them at home while CRPF jawans spend their time in the jungles of Chattisgarh and Jharkhand and in the Valley of Kashmir. They don’t receive any benefits and holidays on time.

He complains that even after doing their duty with commitment there is no one to address their issues.

CRPF DG Durga Prasad replied to the video by saying that the issues which Jeet Singh has raised are already being discussed. CRPF has already taken these up with 7th pay commission.

While the BSF (Border Security Force) jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav had to face disciplinary proceedings for raising his voice on social media, the CRPF has no intentions to take disciplinary action against constable Jeet Singh, who expressed his own concerns online.

The CRPF has made it clear that they will not take any action against Jeet Singh who is currently posted on attachment from the CRPF’s 87th battalion, at the Internal Security Academy at Mount Abu.

IG (ISA) Bhupat Singh Chauhan said that Jeet is a fine lad and he hasn’t abused his seniors or said anything abusive. It is just his personal opinion. Besides, he joined the CRPF only in 2012 and therefore was not aware that he was not authorized to do such a thing.
