The BSF today tweeted “Concerned commandant has been cautioned for not dealing with the matter judiciously”. The concerned constable forgot to affix "honourable" or "Shri" ahead of the PM's name while referring to him
NEW DELHI: The Border Security Force on Wednesday rescinded its order of a seven-day pay cut for the jawan who who forgot to affix 'honourable' or 'Shri' while referring to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, following the latter expressing his disapproval.
In its tweet today, the force said, “Concerned commandant has been cautioned for not dealing with the matter judiciously.”
It added that the "honourable PM" had expressed his displeasure and directed the force to immediately withdraw the punishment.
While imposing this extreme penalty, the BSF had earlier called the mistake "disrespect" to the Prime Minister.
The incident took place on February 21 inside the BSF's 15th Battalion headquarters in Mahatpur, Nadia (West Bengal), during the zero parade, a routine exercise to account for jawans' daily activities.
During the parade, constable Sanjeev Kumar used the word "Modi programme" while giving a report.
When TOI earlier spoke to senior officers in the BSF and other forces, they called the punishment a "bit harsh" and "uncalled for".
