Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the ‘Agneepath’ scheme, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said the Bharatiya Janata Party’s ‘good’ meaning is fatal for the country.
He tweeted, ‘Prime Minister, the people of the country are suffering every day due to your ‘benefits that improve with time’.
Demonetisation, wrong GST, CAA, record breaking inflation, record breaking unemployment, black agricultural laws and now the attack from Agneepath…. BJP means ‘good’, fatal for the country.
On June 14, the central government had announced the new Agneepath scheme for recruitment in the army.
Under this scheme, there is a rule to recruit youth between the age of 17 and a half years to 21 years in the army only for four years, out of which there is a provision to retain 25 percent for 15 more years.
Later, the government increased the upper age limit for recruitment to 23 years in 2022. The scheme is being opposed in different parts of the country.
