Major General Gagandeep Bakshi (retd) is possibly India’s most famous thinking and talking military veteran. He is best known for his forceful articulation of the national interest on prime time news on several channels.

He said from 10th century onwards India lost to every invader. “They came to loot us and enslaved us for 1000 years, because we were fighting against each other. The internal friction became so sharp that some of us were even willing to join hands with the enemy.”

In a recent video, Lance Naik Yagya Pratap Singh, posted in 42 Infantry Brigade in Dehradun, said that after he wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the defence minister, President and the Supreme Court in June last year, about soldiers being used for gardening, cleaning and maintaining the homes of higher officials. He said his brigade received a communication from PMO asking for a probe into his problems, but said that instead of investigating his superiors began harassing him and also initiated an enquiry, which could potentially result in his court-martial.

This has prompted the army to immediately issue a statement that “individual grievances” cannot be ruled out in a large army and that the concerns raised by the soldiers are being addressed.

It all started with BSF trooper Tej Bahadur Yadav posting a video on social media, in which he alleged that the troopers are served bad quality food and at times they are forced to go the bed hungry. He also accused unnamed officers of illegally selling off the food supplies meant for the troopers.
