Several sportsmen have come out in support of Tej Bahadur Yadav who uploaded videos of the quality of food being offered to the Jawans at the border.
Virender Sehwag said that whatever said and done, our Soldiers and Farmers need to be better taken care of and that it needs to be ensured that proper food reached them all.
