playing with the future of youth

This scheme will not only harm the youth, but may also breach the secrecy and credibility of the Army. In such a situation, the central government should stop this scheme and start the recruitment process as before.
To reduce the load of salary-pension
On June 14, the Central Government has started the ‘Agneepath’ recruitment scheme for the recruitment of large numbers of youth in all the three branches of the Army (Army, Navy and Air Force). Under this scheme, the youth will have to serve in the defense for 4 years. It is believed that the government has taken this step to reduce the budget of salary and pension. In such a situation, with the introduction of the scheme, along with Rajasthan, its opposition has also started across the country.
