Bommai accuses Cong of pouring fuel to country-wide protests against Agneepath Scheme

Bengaluru, June 19: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has accused the opposition Congress for pouring fuel to the countrywide protests against Prime Minister Narendera Modi’s most ambitious Agneepath scheme.

Speaking to media persons in Bengaluru on Sunday, June 19, he claimed that Agneepath was a novel scheme. The system of inducting youth for military training is prevalent all over the world, he added.

“If the youth get military training at 17-21 years of age, they would get many opportunities after their stint in the military. They would be inducted into paramilitary forces. The scheme has been launched to have a young military and also well-trained, fit population," he said.

“The Union government is likely to address the apprehensions of those who have already written the exam. But violence and arson, setting fire to trains is unpardonable. Passengers are being inconvenienced, public property is being destroyed,” Bommai lamented.

“The violent protests all over the country is a politically motivated act. People will see and understand this very soon," CM said.

Replying to a question about protests against textbook review, Bommai said, “We will consider the suggestions of former prime minister H D Deve Gowda and the seers with an open mind. We have not made it a prestige issue. We are ready to rectify if there are any objections.’’

He said the State Government has immense respect for the veterans who toiled for the development of the country and the state, historical kings, renowned litterateurs.

“There will be no compromise on according them high respect. We are ready to go to any extent to teach the young generation about these great achievers,” Bommai said.

Preparations for PM's visit

All the preparations for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's two day visit to the State on June 20 and 21 are complete, Bommai said.

    Very good scheme but without any stuff. It is like Vadapanv. There is some vested interest in this agnipat. Or is there some hidden agenda? Projected like a Bahubal hands tied Dhobi ka gaon ka na ghat ka.

    "Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence." By blaming congress you will never do any good or any favour to public. First do yor duty fairly well. Else relinquish your responsibilities because blaming others prove that you are not an efficient person to hold CM post. Public is fed up listening same old story sinse 8 years.

    Clean chit is already ready for Saffron activists but for honest non-saffron candidate admission will be denied. BTW, 17-21 years is the prime time when students choose thier future career studies in the colleges. But if army doesn’t provide them with suitable career oriented studies and subsequent permanent recruitment in defence then students careers will be permanently destroyed. Either they have to continue thier colleges studies after 4 years break or find some menial jobs, if jobs are available to survive without much future hope. This scheme will only add to already high unemployment issue and future socio-economic growth of the country. It will nothing but another govt sponsored chaos and catastrophe. It’s a blind govt, for blinds and with blinds with blunders and failures.

    You said same thing when your PM brought controversial farm bills. Farmers protested and your PM had to take back those laws. Your PM brought demonetization and only poor suffered. Your PM brought note ban and only poor suffered. I am telling your PM because this PM is not for the people. He has ruined the country and it will take ages to bring back India's glory.
