No question of rollback of Agnipath scheme: National Security Advisor Ajit Doval

By Express News Service

NEW DELHI: There was no query of a rollback of the Agnipath army recruitment scheme, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval asserted on Tuesday. In an interview to a information company, Doval mentioned that India has one of many youngest populations on the planet and it can not proceed to have a military with a excessive common age.

There have been individuals who simply needed battle in society to discredit the federal government, Doval added. On what is going to occur to the Agniveers after 4 years, the NSA mentioned, “When recruits from the first batch of Agniveers retire, India will be 5-trillion-dollar economy; industry will need people who have age on their side. These men and women will still be young and won’t have family compulsions.”

On the controversy over Nupur Sharma’s comment on Prophet Mohammed, Doval mentioned it had dented India’s repute internationally. “It has (damaged India’s reputation), in the sense that India has been projected or some disinformation has been spread which is far from the reality. There is a need for us to engage them…Wherever we have engaged with the concerned people, both outside and inside, we have been able to convince them,” the NSA mentioned.

Talking concerning the border standoff with China, he mentioned, “We have made our intentions very clear to China and they are aware we will not tolerate any transgression.”
