    No proposal to end Sahayak system in Army: Government
    Published April 7, 2017

    No proposal for doing away with the Sahayak system in the Army is under consideration, the government today said, notwithstanding several jawans strongly coming out of the colonial-era provision.

    Replying to a question on the issue, Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre said a new complaint redressal mechanism has been put in place under which soldiers can communicate their grievances to the Chief of Army Staff through WhatsApp message after exhausting all other laid down procedures.

    To a separate system, Bhamre said a total of 32,550 complaints were received through the online Centralised Public Grievance Redress System (CPGRAMS) from Armed Forces personnel in the last two years.

    “No proposal for doing away with system of Sahayaks or Buddies for Commissioned Officers and even Junior Commissioned Officers in the Army is under consideration of the Ministry at present,” he said.

    He said a total of 292 complaints from serving and retired personnel have been registered since February 2017. “Every effort is made to ensure that the complaints are dealt with till its final disposal to the satisfaction of the complainant.”

    There has been a raging controversy over use of Sahayaks by some army officers as their servants.

    Last month the body of a jawan, Roy Mathew, was found hanging at Deolali cantonment in Maharashtra after a sting video, which showed him complaining about being made to do household chores of superior officers, went viral.

    Days later, a sepoy also posted a video online criticising the Sahayak or buddy system and accused the senior officers of treating them as “slaves”.

    Bhamre said the data from CPGRAMS software in the last two years indicated that the average time taken for disposal of a case in the department of defence is 97 days.

    To a separate question, he said India is currently the second largest troop contributor among the UN peacekeeping contributors.

    Currently, India is providing 6891 army and 782 police personnel in 11 UN missions and two UN offices.

    As on January 31, the UN owes India USD 74.62 million for contribution towards peacekeeping operations.

    Didn't realize the PMO and Delhi HC were also Pakistani.

    I asked you a question, as this topic has been clarified by the ex-servicemen here and elsewhere.

    There is no issue with food.

    Anything else?

    As for PMO, did PMO raise the issue on TV? As for HC, did it raise the issue on TV?

    I can elaborate for you again - if you wish. And we have sat in worse situation than that SOB and have done a better job.
    You saw that SOB's health? Did the jackass look famished/starved? On the contrary, he must be overweight, seeing his chubby cheeks and general body girth.

    Clearly should have told the PMO and HC that the issue has been cleared by ex-servicemen here and elsewhere' and they have nothing to worry about.

    The food is fine. It is part of a deliberate attempt to malign Indian Army.

    If you notice, multiple videos condemning the army and armed forces came out in aftermath of Uri attack. Even in our media, there continues to be a deliberate attempt at projecting the forces in a bad picture. This is a part of psy ops.

    Nobody was so worked up when India Today carried the pictures of martyred soldiers of 13 SIKH on their cover in the famous raid on Jaffna University.

    Not one word of the CAPF men greivously injured in Kashmir (over 150 of them out of 3500 plus injured) due to stone pelting. But one time army kicked the stone pelters and it becomes something to be drummed up always.

    Same as your food point above. You must think it over.

    The MSM is indeed complicit of your accusations.
    But the videos were posted on social media by the people themselves. Your statement implicates Tej Bahadur and several others as a part of a conspiracy against the Armed Forces. Surely there must have been some noise by the services being questioned if that was the case.

    MSM?

    Sorry, I did not get that. However, everyone of the cases has a history of serial offences. Tej Bahadur has been sacked as of yesterday.

    If there was an iota of truth, PMO and HC as you have quoted, would have acted in his favour. Do you know the rationing of BSF? They get the money to buy and stock their rations. There is no inadequacy of that. The inadequacy comes in mismanagement. Problems occur due to that. There is no denial in that. But is that a new occurrence? His video, in aftermath of the Uri Attack, when Pakistani Army was taking a beating for surgical strikes, is suspect.

    I hope you are able to realise what is being indicated to you.
