Amid protest from Congress, MP CM supports Agniveer
Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has announced that ‘Agniveers‘ (beneficiaries of the Agnipath scheme) would be given “special” priority in the state police services.
After Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced his support to Agniveers, Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s also extended his support saying that after serving in the Armed Forces, Agniveers will be given priority in state police services.
Not only Chouhan but the entire state unit of the BJP stood in support of the Centre’s Agnipath scheme with their own views of nationalism and dedication to serve the nation.
On the other side, Congress attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the “government will now use a temporary army to protect the nation”.
Former Chief Minister Kamal Nath took a dig at the Modi government, calling it ‘short-term’ thinking and planning to protect the country. “Will now the country be protected with such a temporary approach? Real nationalism is coming out now,” Nath wrote on his official Twitter handle.
To counter the Congress party, some state BJP leaders and workers accused the Opposition of trying to divert attention from the National Herald case, adding that the Congress is “misleading the youth”.
