Youths protest after two years of no army recruitment.

Protests against suspension of recruitment to the Army for two years now . Many of those who wish to join the defence forces have already passed the age threshold .

Rohtak: Protests against the suspension of recruitment to the Army for two years now, as well as the slowdown in the process for the Navy and Air Force, erupted on Monday in Tosham, Haryana, a state where it is a custom for young people to enter the Army and be overaged, as the army has held no recruitment rallies since March 2020 due to the pandemic.KD Singh, a newcomer to the Aam Aadmi Party, said it is unfair to those who wish to join the defence forces because many of them have already passed the age threshold for entry-level positions in the three services at Delhi's Jantar Mantar in April 2022.On May 8, youngsters who want to join the defence forces held demonstrations in Rohtak and Jhajjar to highlight the issue.It's a do-or-die situation for youths like me who have modest family roots and see a dire future if they do not join the Army, he said.In March, defence minister Rajnath Singh, president of Yuva Kalyan Sangthan, said a memorandum would be sent to the President.
