Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat said on Friday reacting to the viral video by BSF jawan Tej Bahadur Yadav, that the soldier should have had come directly to him rather than publicising the matter.
“Through the media, I wish to reach out to the rank and file of the Army. Whatever complaint they should have, they can address it through the excellent grievance redressal mechanism we have. Anyone irrespective of rank and service can reach out to me directly. We want them to come directly to us rather than through social media”, Gen Bipin Rawat said.

“This press conference is very relevant to us, as I would like to reach every jawan through you (media). We are one team and we work as one force to ensure India is secure and peaceful”, he added.
“If a soldier writes to us regarding his grievances, penning down his identity; will ensure that his identity is not made public…is the person is unsatisfied with the actions taken, he can chose other ways (to solve the problem).”
