Agniveer will not be able to become a rioter
Indian Army Lieutenant General Anil Puri said that the person becoming Agniveer will give an affidavit that he has not demonstrated or vandalized. No one will join the army without police verification. Puri said that the youth should be physically ready, so that they can join and train with us. We had not anticipated the recent violence over this plan. There is no place for indiscipline in the armed forces. All have to give in writing that they were not involved in any kind of arson/violence.
Will get both honor and leave
The biggest issue regarding the recruitment of Agniveers was leave and award. The Air Force has made it clear that Agniveer will be entitled to all military honors and awards. They will also be given 30 days leave in a year. Apart from this, sick leave will also be available on the advice of the doctor in case of illness.
Agneepath scheme will ruin the youth: Malik

10 thousand to better 40,000 jobs in private
On Agneepath scheme, Gujarat BJP President CR Patil said that youths who do not want to go under this scheme, then they cannot go. Second, if a graduate youth goes to a private job for 10 thousand rupees, then instead of it, he gets 40 thousand rupees every month, then according to 4 years he got work for 16 years.
Praising the scheme, he said that after this he gets Rs 12 lakh and also gets one month leave every year. Reservation of 10% will be available in Military, Home Ministry and other places. If he will get respect in the society, then youth should participate enthusiastically in this scheme.
