Congress will hold a nationwide protest on Monday against the Agnipath scheme.
The party has demanded a rollback of the scheme. A seven-member Congress delegation led by the Leader of Opposition (LoP) and including two Chief Ministers on Monday met President Ram Nath Kovind to submit a memorandum with two demands in connection with the army recruitment scheme ‘Agnipath’ and police action during Congress’ protest.
“(We) urge the government to withdraw Agnipath scheme, hold wide consultations and address issues of quality, efficiency, and economy, without compromising on the welfare of Armed Forces,” was the first demand.
