Amid widespread protests across the country against the new military recruitment Agnipath project, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Rahul’s allegation is that the Prime Minister of the country has repeatedly forced the youth to walk the ‘fire path’ of unemployment with false hopes of employment. Rahul further said that despite the promise of giving 160 million jobs in eight years, the young generation of the country has only gained knowledge about ‘televaja bhaja’. Top leaders, including Congress MP and General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Bora, have joined the youth protesting against the Agnipath project and sat in a ‘satyagraha’ in Jantar Mantar.
