Agnipath protests Live Updates: Amid protests over the Centre’s new recruitment policy for the Armed forces, Lt General Arun Puri, the Additional Secretary of the Department of Military Affairs, said that the main motive behind implementing the Agnipath scheme was to bring in more youth into the forces. “This reform was long pending. We want to bring youthfulness and experience with it. Today, a large number of jawans are in their 30s and officers are getting command much later than in the past,” he added.

She made the remarks as Congress MPs and leaders sat on a ‘Satyagraha’ at Jantar Mantar here in solidarity with the youths protesting the controversial scheme.

Amid widespread protests against the new military recruitment scheme, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said by repeatedly giving false hope of jobs, he has forced the youth to walk on ‘Agnipath’ of unemployment.

Agnipath Scheme Protest LIVE Updates: ‘Aspirants must vouch that they were not involved in protest or arson’

Two days after the government unveiled its Agnipath scheme for recruiting soldiers across the three services, protests raged in several cities against the new defence recruitment path with aspirants raising job security and post-service benefits as their major concerns.

Why are job aspirants up in arms?

Job security and pension are two major issues being cited by protesters. Under the previous system, troops joined for a 17-year period, which could be extended for some personnel, and it resulted in a lifelong pension. The new scheme, however, envisages just a four-year tenure for most, and the Agniveers will not be eligible for pension benefits.

EXPLAINED | Why are job aspirants protesting against the ‘Agnipath’ scheme?

As the protests against Agnipath, the Centre’s new recruitment scheme for the armed forces, continued for the third consecutive day on Saturday, including in Bihar, it sparked a war of words between the JD(U) and the BJP, members of the ruling coalition in the state.

While Bihar BJP chief Sanjay Jaiswal targeted the JD(U) over its party offices coming under attack, calling it a “conspiracy” that police didn’t stop the protesters, JD(U) national president Rajiv Ranjan Singh alias Lalan Singh hit back, asking why police hadn’t acted against protesters in states where it is in power.

The states that have witnessed violent protests include Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Telangana, Haryana, Uttarakhand, and Karnataka. In a bid to provide supportive measures to the Agniveers after their 4-year service ends in the Armed Forces, defence minister Rajnath Singh has also approved a proposal to reserve 10 per cent of the job vacancies in the Ministry of Defence for Agniveers meeting requisite eligibility criteria. The government had also increased the upper age limit for the recruitment of Agniveers from 21 years to 23 years for the recruitment cycle of 2022. Meanwhile, to control the law and order situation, the internet has been suspended in 12 districts of Bihar. Eight trains have been cancelled while six trains have been rescheduled in the East Central Railway zone.
