New Delhi: Congress MP-designate Shashi Tharoor on June 06 came down heavily over Modi Government for introducing Agniveer Scheme and stated that it showed govt’s wrong and misplaced sense of priorities. Speaking to ANI, he said, “Agniveer scheme has damaged the worldwide reputation of professionalism of armed forces. It has thrust young people into the frontline of the army after 6 months training, which is unacceptable. It has also created the division between those who are agniveers who die in the line of duty or killed which happened to one young man already and those who are regular soldiers who killed. All these things in order to save a few pennies to govt show a very wrong and misplaced sense of priorities. So, we would like to scrapped the scheme and if there is debate in the parliament we will call for it to be scrapped.”
