Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday criticised the Agnipath scheme of short-term recruitment into the armed forces, saying that this "reduces the operational effectiveness" of the forces.
In a tweet, Rahul Gandhi said that India faces "threats on two fronts", and "The BJP government must stop compromising the dignity, traditions, valour and discipline" of India's armed forces. This comes on a day when there are already protests in Bihar by aspirants who have called the scheme "a ploy to fool young people".
