Chandigarh, June 18
Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Saturday said those youth who had cleared physical test in the past two years must be to given a chance to appear in the written exam for joining the Army instead of implementation of the Agnipath scheme.
In a statement issued here, the CM reiterated the demand for rollback of the scheme. He said it was ridiculous that in the past two years, thousands of youth had cleared the physical test of the armed forces, but they had not been called for the written exam.
“This is grave injustice to the youth who want to serve their motherland by joining the Army,” the CM added, Mann further said the irrational move had already put the country on boil as youths everywhere were opposing the scheme.
