Rahul Gandhi’s latest tweet reminded Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government that decisions such as the farmers’ law, demonetisation, and GST were rejected by Indian citizens.

The Congress leader said in a Hindi tweet, “Agnipath is a rejected youth. Farmers oppose farm laws. Economists oppose note ban. GST – traders turned down “.

“The prime minister does not understand what the people of the country want because he can only hear the voices of his ‘friends,'” Gandhi continued.

Rahul Gandhi also slammed the Centre yesterday over the Agnipath scheme. He said, “For two years, there will be no rank, no pension, and no direct recruitment. After four years, there is no prospect of a secure future. There is no regard for the army. Listen to the voice of the country’s unemployed youth. Prime Minister, don’t take ‘Agni-pariksha’ of their restraint by driving them on ‘agnipath.’ “.

Gandhi also stated that the new scheme will reduce the forces’ “operational effectiveness.”
