Early Times Report
JAMMU, June 27: The Regional Committee - Jammu of Communist Party of India (Marxist) organized a day long protest demonstration today at press Club Jammu. Hundreds of party activists were gathered at press club and shouted slogans against disastrous Agnipath Scheme launched by Modi Government for recruitment in armed forced.
Hari Singh, Regional Secretary while addressing party activists he expressed serious concern and shock over the latest disastrous design of the BJP Govt of recruitment in armed forces of the country on fixed term contract that too without any provisions of pension. He said that the entire scheme is named as "Agnipath" which dares to introduce the same process of casualisation/contractorisation in the recruitment already being aggressively patronized by Govt in the employment in industries and services in general, also in country's armed forces, unconcerned about the dangerous consequences. This exposes the hypocrisy of .the Modi government's concern for 'our jawans', which it has been evoking to promote its pseudo nationalism and fake patriotism he added.
Further he said such a retrograde move is going to severely compromise as well as negatively affect the quality of employement and efficiency of our armed forces, militating against the country's security as a whole and also the quality of employment, determination-and professionalism, much to the detriment of our national interests. Kishore Kumar, President J&K Kisan Tehrik in his address said that the young soldiers so trained as per armed forces' standard and deployed under Agnipath scheme-will be terminated after four yeurs and thrown into an uncertain future, creating serious hazardous implications for the society as a whole under present brand of authoritarian and divisive governance. He said we condemn such retrograde design of so called "Agnipath" militating against the national interests and welcomes the spontaneous protests surging against the same in different parts of the country we also demands upon the Govt to wlthdraw forthwith from such disastrous experiments with country's armed forces and calls upon the patriotic people to raise their voice of 'protests and disapproval against such anti-national design throughout the country'
