BSF cuts jawan’s pay for disrespecting PM; Modi objects

BSF cuts jawan’s pay for disrespecting PM; Modi objects

NEW DELHI: A BSF jawan, who was punished to suffer a 7-day pay cut for showing “disrespect” towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi during a routine drill, has been relieved after the PM today directed the force to immediately withdraw the order.

Constable Sanjeev Kumar, posted in the 15th battalion of the Border Security Force deployed in West Bengal’s Nadia district, was found “guilty” by his commanding officer (CO) for using words like “Modi program” while attending a morning roll call task on February 21.

The CO of the unit, Commandant Anup Lal Bhagat, issued an order handing down a “pay fine of 7 days”, which means salary cut for a week, to the jawan for “showing disrespect towards the PM”.

“The Prime Minister has expressed his displeasure and directed the force to immediately withdraw the punishment. The order has been rescinded and the concerned Commandant has been cautioned for not dealing with the matter judiciously,” a BSF spokesperson said.

Officials said the jawan referred to an event that he attended as “Modi program” during the ‘zero parade’ or reporting assembly of briefing the seniors about their official activities. They said the CO found this reference by the jawan to the PM as improper and ordered an inquiry against him.

The inquiry, the officials said, was completed in a day and constable Kumar was held guilty and charged under section 40 of the BSF Act (an act prejudicial to good order and discipline of the force).

“Senior officers of the force have been instructed time and again to display qualities of a good leader, both in letter and spirit, for the personnel under their command.

“These men and women work in some of the most arduous conditions across the country. Their commanders should ensure discipline in the force but the punishment has to be commensurate to the offence,” a senior officer of the force said, underling that handing down a pay cut to the jawan was not a judicious decision.
