Agnipath protests

On Friday, incidents of violence, vandalism, torching of railway trains,  stone-pelting, and attacks on police personnel were witnessed in several parts of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Telangana. Agitations transcended to several districts in Bihar as youths protested by lying down on railway tracks and blocking roads, demanding the scrapping of the Agnipath scheme. Agnipath is a pan-India short-term service youth recruitment scheme for the Armed Forces. Those inducted into the service will be called 'Agniveers' and will be employed for four years where rigorous military training will be imparted to them.
