Watch: Youth Congress workers block track, stop train at Delhi’s Shivaji Bridge station

Amid ongoing protests across the country against the Agnipath scheme, the members of Youth Congress stopped a train at Delhi’s Shivaji Bridge. Chanting slogans, some of the protesting Youth Congress workers climbed on the trains while some blocked the tracks demanding the rollback of the Agnipath scheme.

The track was cleared by police and security personnel and train movement resumed after about half an hour, sources said. Several protesters were detained as police personnel tried to remove them from the tracks and the station, a senior police official added.

The Union Cabinet on June 14 approved a recruitment scheme for Indian youth to serve in the three services of the Armed Forces called Agnipath and the youth selected under this scheme will be known as Agniveers. Notably, Agnipath is a pan India merit-based recruitment scheme for enrolling soldiers, airmen and sailors. The scheme provides an opportunity for the youth to serve in the regular cadre of the armed forces. All those recruited under the Agnipath Scheme will be called ‘Agniveers’. Agniveers will be enrolled for a service duration of 4 years including the training period. After four years, only 25 per cent of the Agniveers will be retained or re-enlisted in the regular cadre based on merit, willingness and medical fitness.
