Says Modi has done nothing for soldiers
Tej Bahadur Yadav, the Indian soldier who was sacked from service after he uploaded a video complaining of bad quality food being served to the armed forces, announced that he will contest the upcoming election against Narendra Modi in Uttar Pradesh.
According to the Hindustan Times, Yadav will contest the election as an independent candidate. The former Indian soldier claimed that he was approached by several political parties but he chose to contest independently.
He said that Indian PM Modi seeks votes in the name of soldiers but has done nothing for them. “My motive is not to win or lose. It is to highlight how this government has failed the forces, especially paramilitary forces.”
The elections in India will be held in seven phases from April 11 to May 19.
Yadav was dismissed from BSF in 2017 after he took to social media to complain about the quality of food being served to the forces in Indian-administered Kashmir.
