It is a known fact that there are flames of protest all over the country over the fire announced by the Central Government. The Congress party is demanding the immediate cancellation of the bonfire brought by the central government to dampen the hopes of Army candidates. Protesting against the Modi government’s attitude towards the ideas of the youth, the Congress party today called for a satyagraha at Gandhi Bhavan. Details of the initiation were revealed by TPCC Working President Maheshkumar Goud. He was incensed that the youth who had to come up with a new scheme under the name of Agneepath and join the army were being severely insulted.
He said the AICC had also demanded the abolition of the Agneepath scheme, which was undermining the youth by bringing in contract and outsourcing policy in the army as well. A satyagraha will be held at the Gandhi statue in Gandhi Bhavan from 10 am to 2 pm on Sunday to protest the Centre’s attitude. He suggested that a large number of Congress workers should gather for the inauguration. Mahesh Kumar Gowd said that the Congress will fight till the Agnipath is abolished.
In Delhi ..: Meanwhile, Congress MPs will stage a satyagraha at Jantar Mantar in Delhi on Sunday against the fire. It starts at 10am. Party MPs, working committee members and AICC office bearers will be present. In a statement, Congress leader Sonia Gandhi criticized the Agnipath as a completely directionless scheme. He assured the youth that the struggle would continue peacefully and that the Congress party would stand firm.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has said that Prime Minister Modi’s firebrand should be withdrawn just like the agricultural laws. Rahul described Modi as a ‘mafia hero’. He accused the BJP government of insulting the values of ‘Jai Jawan .. Jai Kisan’. Meanwhile, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra urged the government to understand the plight of Army candidates in rural areas. Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has demanded that the fire be withdrawn. He objected that the scheme would weaken the fighting capacity of the soldiers, leaving the youth without employment and without security for the future.
