Haryana offers guaranteed government jobs to Agniveers

Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Tuesday announced guaranteed jobs to the Agniveers after they complete 4 years of their service. The Chief Minister said Haryana is the first state to ensure such jobs for the youth. He said the youth who would come out after joining the army under the Agnipath scheme would be given Group C or Haryana Police jobs

"Those (75 per cent of Agniveers who would return after four years of service) who want to get Haryana government jobs will be given guaranteed jobs. Those who want can get inducted into any cadre for Group C jobs. Otherwise, we have jobs in Police, which will be given to them", Khattar said.

The new Agnipath scheme announced by the Centre on June 14 resulted in violent protests across the nation. As the agitation intensified in some places, protestors went on the rampage setting trains on fire, torching vehicles and damaging both private and public properties.

Protests had disrupted rail services in several parts of the country. Around 500 train services have been affected throughout the country due to the ongoing agitation, informed railway officials.
