Expressing grave concern over the detrimental impact of the Agnipath scheme on the aspirations of the country’s youth, Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge penned a letter to President Droupadi Murmu, emphasizing the urgent need to address the “gross injustice” inflicted upon young men and women aspiring for regular employment in the armed forces.

Kharge’s missive¬†shared widely on various platforms including X, underscored the plight of nearly 2 lakh individuals whose futures have been cast into uncertainty by the government’s decision to implement the Agnipath scheme. As the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces, Kharge implored President Murmu to intervene and ensure justice for these aspiring servicemen and women.

Rallying behind the cause, the Congress party, led by senior figures like Rahul Gandhi, pledged solidarity with the aggrieved youths, describing them as embodiments of patriotism and valor in their pursuit of justice.

In his letter to President Murmu, Kharge lamented the profound “anyay” or injustice suffered by countless youths, whose dreams were shattered despite the government’s solemn assurances of opportunity. Kharge highlighted the distressing consequences of dashed aspirations, citing reported instances of suicides stemming from despair and disillusionment among the affected youth.

Drawing attention to his recent encounter with a group of aspiring servicemen and women, Kharge revealed the anguish and sense of betrayal felt by those who had diligently prepared for service, only to be denied the opportunity due to the abrupt implementation of the Agnipath scheme.

Kharge illuminated the unforeseen challenges posed by the Agnipath scheme, noting its discriminatory nature and the resultant creation of disparate cadres within the armed forces. He raised concerns regarding the scheme’s potential impact on social stability, particularly for the majority of participants who face an uncertain job market upon completion of their service tenure.

The Congress leader also cited revelations from former Army chief General M M Naravane, who characterized the introduction of the Agnipath scheme as a disruptive surprise for the armed forces.

Kharge concluded by urging President Murmu to uphold the principles of justice (“NYAY”) and intervene decisively to rectify the injustices perpetrated by the Agnipath scheme. With the futures of thousands of young men and women hanging in the balance, Kharge’s impassioned plea underscores the pressing need for swift and equitable resolution to safeguard the aspirations of India’s youth.
