Yadav did not announce the date on which the dismissed soldier will be honoured.
Yadav, clad in a camouflage uniform and carrying a rifle, posted a video clip on a social media website in January to complain about the “quality” of food served to security personnel and accused unnamed officers of illegally selling food supplies meant for troopers.
Since then, the trooper was facing inquiry on various charges, including indiscipline, and his plea for voluntary retirement was rejected by authorities.
He was dismissed from service on Wednesday, after which he said he will move the court “to secure justice”.
