Kangana took to Instagram to share her views on the Agnipath scheme. Defending the scheme and appreciating the government for introducing it, the ‘Manikarnika’ actor wrote in a detailed post, “Many nations like Israel have made army training compulsory for all their youth, few years every one gives to the army to learn life values like discipline, nationalism and what it means to guard your country’s borders, #agnipathscheme has deeper meanings than just getting building careers, employment or making money…”

Kangana further compared the scheme to the ancient practice of sending the young ones to Gurukul and said that the youth now has an advantage as they are getting paid for it. “In olden days everyone went to Gurukul its almost like that it’s just that they get paid to do it, a shocking percentage of youth that’s getting destroyed in drugs and pub needs these reforms. Appreciate the government for taking these initiatives,” she said.
