Agneepath scheme is successful- Rajnath

Rajnath Singh told NDTV that I am confident that the Agneepath scheme is successful and will remain successful in the future too. Under the Agneepath scheme, selected candidates are enrolled as Agniveers for four years. According to the government, on completion of the programme, Agniveers will return to society as a disciplined, dynamic, motivated and skilled workforce and will get employment in other sectors to make a career in the job of their choice.

What did Rajnath say about Agniveer?

Rajnath Singh further said, 'The second aspect of this plan is that we should try to discipline a section of the population as Agniveer. They will have the right skills to help on the front line when needed. It is not a crime to prepare Agni warriors to discipline them.

'I want to reassure the youth…'

On the opposition's charge that the Agneepath scheme will harm the future of the youth who are just entering the workforce, Rajnath Singh said, “I want to assure the youth that we will not allow anyone to play with their future. Agniveer is eligible from the age of 18 and will remain eligible for four years. They will learn new skills and at the end of four years, they will have a few lakh rupees.”

'There should be no politics on Agniveer and Army'

Rajnath Singh said that if any of them wants to do a job, he can. If any of them wants to join the paramilitary forces, he can go. If they want to go into service, of course they can go. We have also kept reservation for them. It is not that anyone can ignore them. The private sector also wants to hire fire warriors. Our government will not allow anyone to play with the future of our young population. Along with this, Rajnath Singh also targeted the opposition parties. He said that the opposition has only one agenda – to confuse the citizens. They should not do politics on Agniveer and the army.
