The ruckus over the Agnipath scheme has not stopped yet. A bandh was called by the opposition against this scheme in Bihar today. During this there has been arson and stone pelting by the protesters. Now the question is whether a conspiracy is being hatched in the name of protesting against Agnipath?
Student organisations in Bihar, protesting against the Centre's newly introduced ‘Agnipath' recruitment scheme for armed forces, have found support in opposition RJD as they called for a 24-hour state-wide bandh on Saturday (June 18, 2022). Various political parties, like the RJD, the HAM, and the VIP have extended their support to the Bihar Bandh called by different youth organisations of the state today.
Massive protests have erupted in several parts of the country since Wednesday against the Agnipath scheme. Bihar witnessed the most nerve wracking violence and arson incidents in the ongoing protest. In view of the violent protest, the authorities had suspended the internet service in 12 districts, nearly one-third of the state.
