New Delhi, Jan 27: Chief of Army staff Gen Bipin Rawat on Friday launched a Whatsapp helpline to receive grievances of army personnel. This comes after several soldiers posted their grievances on social media about the food that was being served to them and the conditions that they were put in.
The Whatsapp number where soldiers can post their complaints is +91 9643300008. The number will be shared with all soldiers.
The newly launched Whatsapp number will remain at Rawat's office.
Few weeks back videos by CRPF and BSF jawans made their way to social media, in which they were seen talking about the poor quality of food served and the conditions they would be put into.
This however, soon drew a lot of criticism. Rawat had then warned that no such videos should be uploaded on any social media platform.
