Troop commanders meet PM Modi today

Opposition to the Agni road project announced by the central government has erupted in various states. Youths in Bihar have been waging a fierce struggle for the last 6 days claiming that they are being denied jobs available in the army due to this scheme.
In this situation, the struggle has spread to various states across the country. Protests are taking place in several states including Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Haryana, Punjab, Jharkhand, Delhi, West Bengal and Telangana.
Protesters set fire to trains parked in several states, including Bihar and Telangana. More than a dozen trains across the country have been torched in the violence. It has been revealed that the railways have lost more than Rs 700 crore due to the train strike and arson.
Commenting on the youth’s protest against the Agni Path project, Prime Minister Modi said, “It is unfortunate that many good projects brought by the central government are being politicized. Many results, many reforms, may seem undesirable at present. But over time, that is likely to change. The path of reform will take us to new milestones. ”
As the struggle intensifies across the country, the commanders of the three armies of the Army, Navy and Air Force are scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi today. They will then brief the Prime Minister on the youth struggle and the Agni Path project.
