In the wake of the Agneepath Scheme, some youths are protesting in Secunderabad, Bihar and other places across the country. To avoid any such incident at the ARO, we have taken precautionary measures at the Guntur Railway station. So the DSPs, CI, SI, Constable and others are deployed to maintain law and order situation in Guntur.” He further urged the protestors to protest peacefully.

“Police will not object to peaceful protests. But if they damage the Government’s property and cause harm to the public then we won’t keep quiet. We will file cases and it will affect your future. We have taken 200 suspects under preventive custody,” said the Guntur SP.


Protests have erupted in various parts of the country against the new recruitment scheme in the Armed Forces. In some places, the protests turned violent as trains were set ablaze.

Agitators vandalised the Secunderabad Railway Station and set a train ablaze during a protest against the Centre’s Agnipath scheme. The protestors vandalised the windows of a train and torched a two-wheeler on tracks and a few bags on the platform. One person died as protests turned violent.

According to Anuradha, Secunderabad Railway SP, said, “Around 1500 to 3000 people protested. They held stone-pelting also in which some police personnel got injured.” “We will take steps to ensure no disruption to train traffic. We will take the necessary steps to prevent such situations from happening again,” she added.

The Central government is being sharply criticized by the Opposition parties over the Agneepath recruitment scheme and demanded its withdrawal.

    I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
