    Mahendragarh (Haryana): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday accused the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government in the Centre of turning India's soldiers into labourers and promised to scrap the Agniveer scheme after coming to power on June 4. Addressing a public rally in Haryana's Mahendragarh, the Congress leader said that India's borders are secured by the youth of Haryana and other states. "You have patriotism in your heart, blood, and DNA. Narendra Modi ji, for the first time, has turned India's soldiers into labourers. He (PM Modi) says that there will be two kinds of soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country. One, a normal jawan or officer whose family will get a pension, status, and all other facilities. The other, a poor family's son who is named Agniveer; this Agniveer will neither get the status of 'shaheed' nor will he get any pension or any other facility," Rahul Gandhi said. He further said that after June 4, the INDIA bloc would tear this Agniveer scheme into pieces and dump it in the dustbin. "The Army does not want this scheme... this scheme is imposed by the PMO. The INDIA bloc government will come to power and the first thing we shall do is throw this Agniveer scheme in the dustbin. The soldiers who sacrificed their lives will be only of one category... the government of India will work for everybody, everybody guarding India's borders will get the status of 'shaheed'. We are going to tear this Agniveer scheme into pieces and dump it in the dustbin," the Congress MP said.
