CM welcomes Agnipath recruitment scheme

TAWANG, 21 Jun: Chief Minister Pema Khandu welcomed the central government’s decision to recruit ‘agniveers’ through the Agnipath scheme in all the three wings of the country’s defence force.

He expressed optimism that the army, the navy and the Air Force would soon be “beaming with youth and energy.”

Speaking at a Yoga Day programme here on Tuesday, Khandu said, “‘Agniveers’, after retirement will be given top priority in the state police services.”

He added that those who would like to start their own businesses would be given priority through all state government flagship schemes. (CM’s PR Cell)
