Recently, the central government has started ‘Agnipath’ scheme to recruit youth for 4 years in the army. After the announcement of this scheme, youth across the country are protesting against the decision of the government. In this protest, there has been a lot of violence, stone pelting, as well as many trains have also been set on fire. Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who never opposes any policy of BJP government, has defended this scheme.
Kangana shared a note in support
Kangana has praised the government for its decision to join the army under the Agnipath scheme and supported it. Sharing a note on her Instagram story, Kangana Ranaut wrote, “Many nations like Israel have made army training compulsory for all their youth, few years every one gives to the army to learn life values like discipline, nationalism and what it means to guard your country’s borders. #agnipathscheme has deeper meaning than just getting building careers, employment or making money….”
Comparing the Agnipath scheme of the central government with the Gurukul method, Kangana further wrote, “In olden days everyone went to Gurukul its almost like that it’s just that they getting paid to do it, shocking percentage of youth that’s getting destroyed in drugs and pubG needs these reforms…appreciate the government for taking these initiatives (folded hands emoji).”

Protests against the Agnipath Defense Recruitment Scheme continued in several states for the third day on Friday, in which trains were torched, public property was vandalized and thousands of tracks and highways were blocked.
Let us tell you that while on one hand the government is quite confident about this scheme, on the other hand this new scheme is being opposed across the country. In Bihar, demonstrations are being held in protest against this by arson of tires, stone pelting and jamming the NH. The opposition is also continuously attacking the government regarding this and is demanding to withdraw this plan.
