Agnipath Scheme: Youth protests continue in many states over the government's 'Agnipath' scheme. The biggest opposition to this plan is happening in Bihar. Students have taken to the streets in Muzaffarpur, Gaya, Chapra, Buxar, Jehanabad, Arrah, Munger, and Saharsa.

Students are not considering this plan right for their future. Students say that there is no provision of permanent service or pension in this scheme and their future will be insecure after four years of service.

However, the government says that under this scheme, 25 per cent of 'Agniveers' who have served four years will be made permanent in the army, while 75 per cent of soldiers will be given preference in recruitment in different departments and undertakings of the central government.

Opposition parties are attacking the government on this plan

The 'Agnipath' scheme has been welcomed by the BJP-ruled states, while the opposition parties are attacking the government over this scheme.

The oppositions say that through this scheme the government wants to cut the defence budget. Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi said that the government is making the army a recruitment laboratory.

At the same time, the protesting students say that when more than 40 thousand Agniveers will be appointed in the next 96 days, then what will happen to the appointments that were to be made in the last two years.
