Knowing the caste of Agniveers, what will the army and the government do?
Sometimes the politicians keep dividing the country on the basis of religion and sometimes on the basis of caste. Now caste division is also being done in the army guarding the borders of the country. In the army where reservation is not applicable, in the same army, Agniveer candidates are now being asked their caste.
Army asks for caste certificate from Agniveers
Agniveers are now being asked for certificates of their caste and religion, who have filled the forms for recruitment in the Indian Army. In the notification issued by the army, it has been said to give caste certificate, but the surprising thing is that reservation is not applicable in the army, so SC-ST, OBC or EWS do not get the benefit of reservation in army jobs. Now the question arises that why does the government want to know about their castes in jobs where reservation is not available at all?
Will there be sorting on the basis of caste?
Experts are expressing the apprehension that when the time comes to confirm the 25% Agniveers, then there will be no sorting according to the castes? In this regard, senior journalist Dilip C Mandal wrote on Twitter, ‘ Army is asking for caste certificate for Agniveer . When reservation is not to be given in the army , then what is the government / army going to do with the cast certificate ? This truth is coming out after independence _ _ _ also on the basis of caste – religion . _ _ Indians can not eat together . _ Why does the government want to know the caste of the soldiers ? Should 50% reservation be given to SC , ST, OBC in Agniveer ? Or will the government use these certificates when making the 25 % permanent ? The purpose What is there when there is no quota ? Sena, Modi and Rajnath Singh explain. ,
Dilip Mandal has also expressed the apprehension that after 4 years, Agniveers should not be confirmed according to caste, because in the Agniveer scheme after 4 years 75% of the soldiers will be retired and only 25% will get a permanent job. Dilip Mandal wrote in his third tweet, ‘ The government , which did not conduct the caste census , is asking for caste certificate for the first time for recruitment in the army . It can be used to sort 75 % . If this is not the purpose then The government should explain why it has to know the caste of the candidate when there is no reservation in army recruitment . Is there a matrimonial service ? For the first time in Indian history , army recruitment will be based on caste ? Shameful @narendramodi
India is a caste dominated country and we all know how the society here is divided into castes. If someone is harmed according to caste, then someone is also benefited. In such a situation, the possibility cannot be ruled out that the Agniveers can be discriminated on the basis of caste while making sure. At the same time, the question also arises whether Indians are not one and cannot live together in the army irrespective of caste and religion?
