Agnipath scheme gross injustice to country’s youth: Kharge writes to President

Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge on Monday wrote to President Droupadi Murmu highlighting the “gross injustice” done to the country’s youths seeking regular employment in the armed forces due to the Agnipath scheme and urged her to ensure justice for them.

The future of nearly 2 lakh young men and women has become uncertain due to the decision taken by the Centre, Kharge said in his letter to the President.

The President is also the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces.

Kharge shared his letter on X and said the Congress is with the youths in the fight for justice for the armed forces aspirants “who are full of patriotism and bravery”.

Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi also shared Kharge’s letter on X.

In his letter to Murmu, Kharge said, “My main purpose in writing to you is to highlight the ‘anyay’ or injustice inflicted on the lakhs of youth whose dreams did not materialise despite the solemn promise made by the government of India.”
