New Delhi, Jan 12 (IBNS) : Close on the heels of the controversy over a BSF jawan's video post complaining about poor food, a CRPF jawan has now spoken up about the alleged discrimination meted out to jawans of the paramilitary forces, reports said.

The CRPF constable, who identifies himself as Jeet Singh, is posted at the CRPF’s Internal Security Academy at Mount Abu.

The self recorded video shows the jawan speaking about the alleged discrimination faced by the personnel of CRPF and other paramilitary forces in comparison with the Indian army jawans and making an appeal to the Government for redressal.

The video was reportedly shot two months ago.

“Friends, I am constable Jeet Singh, a CRPF Jawan and  I want to convey a message to honourable PM Narendra Modi. We, the  CRPF men, do all sorts of duties in this country…elections to the Lok Sabha, Rajya Sabha, even those to small Gram Panchayat elections…besides, VIP security, Parliament, airports, mosques, temples, gurudwaras…” Singh says in Hindi in the video.

“Yet, the difference in facilities available to personnel of Indian Army compared to those available to CRPF and other paramilitary personnel, is so vast that you will be surprised. The most important thing I want to tell Modi ji…our country has so many govt schools and colleges…where you pay teachers about Rs. 50000-60,000…besides, they spend so many days home…celebrate festivals at home, while we toil away in jungles of Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, and in the hills of Jammu and Kashmir,” he says.

Singh also spoke about the lack of perks, welfare measures and holidays in the CRPF, compared to Indian Army,

"No one understands our pain, friends. Don’t we deserve it ? The Army get pension, our pension has been stopped. Twenty years later, when we leave our job, what will we do? We don’t get ex-servicemen quota, no canteen, no medical facilities,” he says.

Singh clarifies he has nothing against the Army, but only wants similar facilities for CRPF jawans.
