Opposition Leader Appeals to President for Justice in Armed Forces Recruitment Issue

National Desk, 26th February: In an effort to address what he perceives as “injustice,” Mallikarjun Kharge, Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha, penned a letter to President Droupadi Murmu concerning the contentious matter of armed forces recruitment.

Kharge addressed President Murmu in her capacity as the Supreme Commander of the Indian Armed Forces, outlining a troubling narrative involving nearly two lakh aspirants whose hopes were dashed by governmental decisions.

Detailing his interaction with disillusioned young men and women who had diligently cleared rigorous tests and examinations, Kharge highlighted the abrupt cessation of the recruitment process in favor of the Agnipath Scheme, which was implemented between 2019 and 2022.

Expressing deep concern over the Agnipath Scheme, Kharge emphasized its lack of consultation with the armed forces and the potential impact on social stability. He underscored the disparities created by the scheme, leading to uncertainty among the aspirants about their future prospects.

Kharge’s plea to President Murmu centers on the alleged injustice suffered by aspirants who invested years of effort and resources into pursuing their dreams, only to face disappointment and financial loss. He noted that the failure to refund the collected application fees amounted to a staggering sum of Rs 125 crore, further exacerbating their distress.

The letter highlights the pressing need for justice and fairness for the affected youth, urging President Murmu to intervene promptly and ensure that their grievances are addressed promptly and equitably.
