Actor-politician Shatrughan Sinha today declared the Centre's "Agnipath" recruitment scheme for the defence forces a "flawed policy" and said the protests against it has reached such a point that a rollback is inevitable. The government's view that Agnipath will help in the creation of a leaner, younger and more tech-savvy force, Mr Sinha questioned if the recruits get so efficient how can they be retired after just four years.
"You throw them out after four years to become security guards at the BJP office? I have seen the best of the army people speak out against this policy," the Trinamool MP said.
