Protests are taking place in many states of the country regarding the Agnipath scheme. In this, the youth of Bihar are seen most furious and angry. There are many concerns of the protesting students who took to the streets in Bihar regarding the new scheme of recruitment in the Army. The biggest question in this is that they work hard to get recruited in the army. Then after working so hard, if you get a job for only four years, then what is the use?
The protesters created a ruckus for more than an hour. After a lot of persuasion by the police, the youth calmed down. The protesting youth raised slogans against the 'Agneepath' scheme of army recruitment and demanded the withdrawal of the scheme. Police have registered a case against unknown people.
The youth staged a sit-in protest in Jaipur against the Agneepath scheme of the central government. Unhappy with the scheme, unemployed youth gathered in the Kalwar area on Wednesday. Angry youths blocked the Delhi-Jaipur highway. Due to which there was a two kilometer long jam on the highway.
The protesters say that the central government has played with our future with the Agneepath scheme. For years, youths preparing for army recruitment have been cheated. This scheme will not only harm the youth but may also breach the secrecy and credibility of the army.
Responding to this, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said that he will have many chances. Several ministries, PSUs and some states have also agreed to take them. From each batch of Agniveer, maximum 25% will be given the option to be permanent. Rest of the service will be for 4 years only. The Army has made it clear that all the recruitments will be under Agneepath. Age is only between 17 and a half years to 21 years.
After 4 Years Disciplined and Skilled Life Someone who is 24 years old will always be a better option to get a job as compared to others. After 4 years, the Ministry of Home Affairs has been told to give priority to qualified firefighters in recruitment in CAPFs and Assam Rifles. After 4 years many big companies like you have announced to hire Disciplined and Skilled Agniveer. Graduation degree courses will start for Agniveers in 4 years. Will get recognition from home and abroad. At the age of 21 to 24 years, you will be able to add an amount of about 20 lakhs. Savings of 7-8 lakhs and 12 lakh centers will be given in 4 years.
UGC and IGNOU are working together to provide recognition for the skills acquired by Agniveers. In addition, once the Digital University is established, Agniveers will have the opportunity to do courses in emerging areas. This will make them future ready. pic.twitter.com/P3ONNWo8BA— Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar (@mamidala90) June 15, 2022
