New Delhi: Tej Bahadur Singh, the BSF jawan whose videos have sparked a raging controversy raising questions about quality of food being served to soldiers, Tuesday claimed to have surpassed legendary revolutionary Bhagat Singh in exposing corruption in the forces.
“Jo bomb Bhagat Singh ne nahi phoda… woh maine phod diya. Aur ab main peechchhe nahi hatunga (I have done what Bhagat Singh didn’t. Now I won’t back down),” Yadav said in a 2.15-minute audioclip on Tuesday, The Times of India reports.
Amid reports that he might face disciplinary action over his Facebook post that went viral across social media, Yadav said, “If this benefits thousands of others (jawans), then I won’t back down. It’s not a big deal if somebody gets something from my sacrifice.”
Yadav said he had no faith in a BSF inquiry and said there should be a probe by CBI or NIA into his allegations of corruption in the forces.
“I have learnt that 60 to 70 lakh people have watched my video on Facebook. It has happened for the first time. India is waking up for sure,” Yadav was quoted as saying by the daily. BSF officials, however, said they were not aware of the new audio.
Meanwhile, Inspector General of the BSF (Jammu Frontier) DK Upadhyay said a court of inquiry had been ordered into the matter.
