Assembled for the zero parade on 21st  February, a routine exercise to account for the Jawan’s daily activities and report attendance, Border Security Force (BSF) jawan Constable Sanjeev Kumar mistakenly proclaimed ‘Modi Programme’ without prefixing ‘Shri’ or ‘Honourable’ to his name during the announcement. Upon noticing this, the commanding officer of the battalion, Commandant Anup Lal Bhagat, therefore, penalized the jawan by charging him with a seven-day pay cut from his salary under the section 40 of the BSF Act (an act prejudicial to good order and discipline of the force.) as reported by The Hindu

The BSF committee justified that an esteemed and significant occupant of the chair of Prime Minister should always be referred with respect, especially at an institution of the national military.

A few days later, a BSF spokesperson said, “The Prime Minister has expressed his displeasure and directed the force to withdraw the punishment immediately. The order has been rescinded, and the concerned Commandant has been cautioned for not dealing with the matter judiciously.”

The charges against Constable Sanjeev Kumar, posted in the 15th battalion of the Border Security Force deployed in West Bengal’s Nadia district, has therefore been dropped upon the order from Prime Minister Narendra Modi himself.

However, one must ponder the deliverance of such a harsh and gruesome decision from the part of the BSF. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is undoubtedly a highly revered authoritative figure for all the Indian citizens, but the severity of the issue must be taken into consideration. Failing to affix ‘Shri’ or ‘honourable’ before the name does not account for a seven-day cut on a person’s salary which allegedly was an unforeseen mistake.
