MHA refutes reports on BSF trooper’s complaint

New Delhi, Jan 13 (IANS) The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Friday refuted media reports that it has found no substance in a complaint by a BSF trooper of poor quality food being served to security personnel posted along the border.

“The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) sends reports to all concerned from time to time. (Recently) it has sent reports not only to PMO but all concerned,” an official told IANS.

He refused to divulge any detail of the reports, saying “a lot was being discussed about the matter and the report (in question) is not for public consumption.”

A widely circulated media report has claimed that the Ministry of Home Affairs in a report to the Prime Minister’s Office has found no substance in the complaint of the trooper and there was no discontent among the personnel.

The ministry had ordered a probe into the matter after BSF trooper Tej Bahadur Yadav complained the quality of food being served to security personnel was not good.
