Firozabad, Aug 11 (KMS): A police constable in Firozabad district in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh drew a huge crowd as he stood on the road and wept bitterly over the quality of food served in the police mess.
In a video that went viral on social media, constable Manoj Kumar was seen sobbing on the road with a plate of rotis, dal and rice while a senior official tries to pacify him in a bid to take him back to the police station.
Surrounded by passersby, Manoj Kumar said he complained to his seniors about the food, but no action was taken.
“I am being threatened that I will be fired from my job,” he said.
“The Chief Minister had earlier announced that the state government provides an allowance for a nutricious diet for police officials. But this is what we get after long hours of duty,” he said.
“How will cops work if we won’t get a proper diet?,” he asks.
In another video, he is seen sitting on the divider with the plate of food telling people, “even animals won’t eat this.”
