New Delhi, June 27
Congress leaders and activists today held a nationwide ‘Satyagraha’ against the Agnipath scheme across 3,500 Assembly headquarters and demanded its rollback.
“We stand with the youth in their demand for an immediate rollback of the Agnipath scheme. The BJP government should not weaken national security by implementing this scheme,” party spokesperson Mohan Prakash said.
He said the Congress stood with lakhs of ex-servicemen who were concerned about the scheme’s impact on the ethos, unit cohesion and combat effectiveness of the Armed Forces. “Introducing differential training standards and discriminatory pay and allowances among our soldiers threatens to disturb long-established standards with no clear benefit,” Prakash added.
