Lucknow: The dismissed BSF trooper, Tej Bahadur Yadav, who complained of poor quality food given to the forces on Sunday said he would contest the Lok Sabha elections against Prime Minister Narendra Modi as an independent candidate from Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh.

The Border Security Force (BSF) constable was dismissed in 2017 after he posted a video on social media platform Facebook complaining about the poor quality of food provided to the security personnel.

Speaking to media persons, Yadav said: “I have decided to contest as an independent candidate against Modi in Varanasi.”

He said he would raise the issue of corruption in the security forces.

Lamenting at the government, Yadav said: “I was dismissed because I spoke the truth. Even the parliamentary committee formed with M.M. Joshi as its member submitted the report in Parliament in my favour. Despite that, I was dismissed from the job.”
