"Government school teachers are paid more than us.and we get no occasions or advantages", Constable Jeet Singh says in the video, which he begins by announcing - "I want to send a message to the Prime Minister". "We will ensure that such incident do not take place in future".
"Those with the armed forces avail of medical and canteen facilities, besides other welfare schemes, but nothing of the sort is provided to CRPF personnel".
The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) chief has come out in support of a trooper who posted a YouTube video appealing to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the force's working conditions, and compared it with facilities the Army is getting.
But despite doing all this, he continues, there is a vast difference in the facilities provided to the Indian Army and those given to the CRPF. "What the Jawan said doesn't concern CRPF", Director General K Durga Prasad told Indiatimes.
"The constable has not complained about any organisation and has only voiced his aspiration".
'BSF has taken a holistic view of the situation and follow-up process has been swung into action, ' the statement said, before listing an audit of prevalent systems by team of senior commanding officers as one of the measures.
The BSF has submitted an interim report to MHA, besides issuing fresh guidelines for maintaining high quality standards with food for its personnel along the border. "After retirement, we are not given ex-servicemen quota benefits that could help us bag good jobs", Singh laments in the video.
On its part, the BSF had claimed on Tuesday that Mr Yadav was court-martialled in 2010 for indiscipline and aiming a gun at a senior officer, though the paramilitary force assured a thorough investigation into his allegations.
However, the Facebook post about the missing of BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav has been removed now.
It now remains to be seen if Rijiju will make sweeping changes in the way paramilitary soldiers are treated or just treat it like a local issue. There are proper channels of grievance redressal in every force where every jawan can raise such issues instead of putting it on social media, which officers caution, could be risky as these forces are engaged in the frontline of the nation's internal security.
