The army commander said that on completion of the four-year period, Agniveers will go to society as a disciplined, dynamic, motivated and skilled workforce for employment in other sectors including corporate and industry, central para military forces and public sector units to pursue their career in jobs of their choice. “It is a win-win situation for all and Agniveers would act as a bridge between the army and society…they would play a role in nation building and even fight street crime, especially against women as responsible citizens of the country,” said Dwivedi while addressing a presser in Srinagar.
The Lt Gen said this scheme would attract young people in J&K, put them on the right track and ensure that they don’t go astray. “Our effort in four years is that we show them the right path…Our Moulvis would train them and make them understand the Quran so that they take the right path,” said Dwivedi. He also informed that the youngsters would be trained in local RR units to ensure that they get enrolled whenever there is a vacancy.
