Amidst the protests over the Agnipath scheme, many BJP leaders were seen counting the benefits. Meanwhile, BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya, while enumerating the benefits of the scheme, had said that if he has to keep security outside the BJP office, then he will give priority to Agniveers. Now Meghalaya Governor Satya Pal Malik, who is known for being vocal against the Narendra Modi government, has responded to this statement of Vijayvargiya.
Talking to NDTV, Satyapal Malik has said that “This is a very unjust scheme. The more the reaction is visible, the more people are angry. I am getting calls from many kids. This is a very poorly thought out decision. This has created a gap between the central government and the people of rural areas.
Satyapal Malik said that after this scheme, students will not get married and neither will they get employment. They are spoiling the life of this generation. On the statement of Kailash Vijayvargiya, Satya Pal Malik has said, “Kailash Vijayvargiya has said a very derogatory thing. For this he should apologize. The fact is that Vijayvargiya deserves to be a guard, but became an MP because of democracy.”
Satya Pal Malik has appealed to the youth not to do violence at any cost but fight with strength and unity, it will be withdrawn. It is also a request to the Prime Minister that if you change your stand then nothing will spoil you. It would be better if it is taken back as soon as possible.
Let us tell you that there was a huge uproar in the whole country regarding the Agnipath scheme. The people opposing the plan had the support of many political parties. Violence also took place during the protests in Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, several trains were torched in Bihar. However, the government has made it clear that this scheme will not be withdrawn. On behalf of the army, it has been said that the doors are closed for those who are found indulging in violence.
