Congress spokesperson Wing Commander (R) Anuma Acharya has raised questions regarding the age limit in the Agneepath scheme of the Central Government. He said that Virat Kohli is fit at 33 years and Mary Kom brings medals at 40 years, then talking of new age in the army is a lie. Major General (R.) K.K. Sinha (defense specialist) said that at the age of 42, during the time of Kargil war, I used to come first in the race. Earlier it used to take 6 months to learn GPS, today everyone knows. Now the battle has turned to technology.
The Congress spokesperson said that at the age of 40, Mary Kom is fit to participate in a world-class competition. So the army with an average of 36 years has a habit of keeping and staying fit like Mary Kom. He said that the edge of the army remained intact. Virat Kohli is also 33 years old and absolutely fit. Nothing is kept in the philosophy of this age.
Anuma Acharya said that I come from the Indian Air Force. We are hearing only two things from the government. In which number one is more youthful army and secondly the pension bill will be less. He said that the government is not listening to the fact that the tactical capability of the warrior will increase. If there is a question of age, then make a commanding officer of 36 years and a general of 50 years. He questioned why 57-year-olds became generals. Lower the age limit there too.
Acharya said that only a young man is below 35 years of age. These people are kept fit. Every year there is a medical. In some places, our pilot has a medical for 6-6 months. He said that now let’s talk about the Agneepath scheme model. We have accepted it in many countries.
The Congress spokesperson, referring to the book Startup Nation, said that it was written by an American and Israeli in 2009. Because there were Israeli startup companies, they were huge. 63 companies were listed on the New York Stock Exchange. He said that how is it possible that you will apply the model with a population of 70 lakhs to a population of 130 crores. He said that a friend of mine is posted in Israel. He told that the government gives 50 percent funding to those who come out of the army here after two years. To complete their further education, but there is nothing like that here.
