Clear wave in favour of I.N.D.I.A. bloc: Rahul
   Date :28-May-2024


CONGRESS leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday claimed that the I.N.D.I.A. bloc, if voted to power, would scrap the Agnipath scheme of recruitment in defence services and deposit Rs 8,500 to every woman’s account in each month.
Addressing an election rally at Bakhtiyarpur in Bihar, he asserted that Narendra Modi will not be able to become the Prime Minister again, since there is a clear wave in favour of the I.N.D.I.A. bloc. “When the clear wave in favour of the I.N.D.I.A. bloc across the country block will form the Government, the Agnipath scheme will be withdrawn,” Gandhi said.
The scheme, announced by the Modi Government in 2022, envisages recruiting young soldiers on a contractual basis for four years and retire 75 per cent of them without certain benefits enjoyed by those who were not employed under this programme. Gandhi said, “From July, Rs 8,500 will be deposited in women’s accounts every month. This will change financial condition of every family.
