Arvind Kejriwal lauds Akhilesh for fielding ex-BSF constable Tej Bahadur Yadav against PM Modi

The former BSF constable was dismissed in 2017 after he posted a video online complaining about the food served to the troops.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on April 29 lauded Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav for fielding dismissed Border Security Force constable Tej Bahadur Yadav against Prime Minister Narendra Modi from Varanasi.

The former BSF constable was dismissed in 2017 after he posted a video online complaining about the food served to the troops.

Lauding the SP chief, Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi, "On one hand there is a person who risked his life for the country and lost his job to fight for the rights of jawans, while on the other hand there is this person who fired a jawan who raised his voice and asks votes over martyred soldiers."
