Across the country, the youth have hit the streets following Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s announcement of the Agnipath scheme for short-term contractual appointments to the armed forces. The developments remind us of the Freedom Struggle. Before Independence, the freedom fighters used to uproot railway tracks and set train coaches on fire. Today even as the government celebrates Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotasav, our youth are torching national assets. This is wrong and the youth should not do it. But we also need to ponder as to why such a situation has arisen.
