Bathinda, January 13

Scores of youngsters who had undergone the physical fitness test for recruitment in the Indian Army staged a protest and blocked the Bathinda national highway on Thursday. The agitators raised slogans against the Centre alleging that despite clearing the physical fitness test, further process was not being initiated.

Mang Pal, an aspirant from Ludhiana, said, “I had participated in Army recruitment in 2020. Many aspirants had cleared the fitness test. We were told that written exam would be conducted soon. Now, citing Covid-19, the exam has been postponed.” He said, “Exams for recruitment in the Police Department and other sectors have been conducted. Thus, we decided to hold a protest here outside the Army cantonment in Bathinda.”
