Protests were staged in several parts of Haryana on Thursday against the Central government’s ‘Agnipath’ scheme to recruit soldiers on a four-year contract basis.

The protests remained peaceful. Young armed forces aspirants blocked traffic at several places across the State, including Rewari, Charkhi Dadri and Rohtak, and handed over memoranda to the district authorities expressing concerns over job security and pension under the new scheme.
