Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has hit back at BJP General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya’s statement giving priority to former Agniveer soldiers for the security of the BJP office. Rahul Gandhi, who did not hoist the tricolor for 52 years of independence, cannot be expected to respect the soldiers. Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi also questioned the silence of the Prime Minister on the issue of Agneepath.
Rahul Gandhi tweeted that those who did not hoist the tricolor for 52 years of independence, cannot be expected to respect the soldiers. The youth have the zeal to join the army, not to protect the BJP offices by becoming a watchman, but to protect the country. The silence of the Prime Minister is a stamp on this disgrace.
What did Vijayvargiya say?
Speaking to the media at the BJP office in Indore, Vijayvargiya said that discipline and obedience are foremost in the training of the army, and both the qualities will be developed in the youth during service under the Agneepath scheme. He further said that if I have to keep security in this BJP office, then I will give priority to (East) Agniveer.

Vijayvargiya clarified by tweeting
After creating a ruckus on his statement, Vijayvargiya clarified by tweeting, ‘Agniveer who came out of the Agneepath scheme will definitely be trained and committed to duty. After completing his service in the army, his excellence will be put to use in whatever field he goes. That is clearly what I meant.’
Vijayvargiya surrounded the Toolkit gang
Vijayvargiya further said, ‘People associated with Toolkit gang are trying to insult the workers by distorting my statement. This would be an insult to the workers of the country. The country knows very well the conspiracies of this toolkit gang against the national heroes and religious heroes.
