PM Modi asks BSF to cancel punishment given to a jawan for ‘disrespecting’ him

The order that penalised a BSF jawan for referring to the Prime Minister without affixing “honourable” or “Shri” to his name has now been rescinded after Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his displeasure over the punishment.

The incident had taken place on February 21st inside the BSF’s 15th Battalion headquarters in Maharput, West Bengal. During the zero parade, constable Sanjeev Kumar used the word “Modi programme” while giving a report. The BSF deemed it as an insult to the Prime Minister and the constable was handed down a 7-day pay cut.

The Commanding Officer of the battalion, Commandant Anup Lal Bhagat, had initiated disciplinary action against Kumar. He was tried and found “guilty” under Section 40 of the BSF Act (prejudicial to good order and discipline of the force). BSF and all security forces are known to follow strict protocols when it comes to referring to seniors within the force or in the political class.

Today, however, the BSF tweeted informing that this order had been cancelled and the pay cut was reversed.

This cancellation of punishment comes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his displeasure and instructed the Border Security Force to cancel the punishment handed out to Constable Sanjeev Kumar.

The BSF India handle had tweeted earlier confirming the chain of events and the cancellation of the punishment handed out to the Constable.
