Hyderabad, June 20: IT Minister KT Rama Rao slammed the remarks made by a union minister and BJP leader over Agneepath Scheme.
In a tweet on Monday, he criticised Union Minister Kishan Reddy for saying that those recruited through the Agnipath Scheme will be employed as drivers, electricians, barbers and washermen in the Armed forces after completing their four-year tenure as Agniveers.
KTR also slammed BJP leader Kailash Vijayvargiya for offering security guard jobs to Agniveers at the party office. He flayed the BJP leaders for saying that youth did not understand Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks on Agneepath Scheme.
The minister alleged that announcement of the Agneepath Scheme was part of a plan to divert the attention of Indian people from allegations on Narendra Modi and Adani corruption nexus in Sri Lanka. Meanwhile, the Congress gave ‘Bharat Bandh’ call on Monday opposing news scheme.
