Jaipur: Ramlal Jat, a minister in the Congress government in Rajasthan, has made a controversial statement over the Agnipath scheme brought by the Central government for military recruitment. He says that the Agniveer system will take us into the era of trend terrorists. The central government should consider the future of the youth. Revenue Minister Ramlal Jat further said that when a pension can be given only after being an MLA and MP for a year, then why is an Agniveer not being given a pension? While in the Agnipath scheme, the youth will be unemployed after working for three to four years.
The minister further said that in the coming time, the youth of the country will understand this. Being in opposition, we will oppose the Agnipath scheme on every platform. By supporting the issue raised by Rahul Gandhi, we will try to awaken the country. Earlier, Congress MP from Assam Abdul Khaliq had said that the Modi government takes decisions in a hurry. Just as the farmers' bill has been withdrawn, they will also have to withdraw the Agnipath scheme.
