They are openly opposing to change the army recruitment system. He said that he believes that only to eliminate pension benefits etc. in army and government jobs, along with reducing the number of recruits in the army, the government is limiting it to only four years, which is grossly unfair and unjustified. Playing with the future of poor and rural youth, their families. The BSP leader said that people in the country are already sad and suffering from rising poverty, inflation, unemployment and wrong policies and arrogant working style of the government, in such a situation, the uneasiness spread among the youth regarding new recruitment in the army is now causing disappointment. .

Sitaram Yechury, general secretary of the Communist Party of India-Marxist, tweeted that the CPI(M) politburo completely rejects the Agneepath plan. This plan is going to harm the national interest of India. Professional armed force cannot be created by recruiting soldiers on 4 years contract. He claimed that this would compromise the quality and efficiency of our armed forces. The CPI(M) general secretary said that the Agneepath scheme should be scrapped immediately.
Communist Party of India MP Vinay Vishwam also opposed the plan and demanded its withdrawal. He claimed that it was to enforce contract system in the Indian Army, exploit the youth by paying low wages and it was a backdoor entry for the RSS. This is a betrayal of our unemployed youth. Army recruitment is not a dish in BJP's kitchen. Viswam said that the matter should be discussed in Parliament. CPI general secretary D Raja alleged that the new scheme was putting the future of the youth at risk. He said it should be withdrawn immediately. Our youth deserves a fair, secure job.
It should be noted that under this scheme, there will be new recruitments in the Army, Navy and Air Force for four years. After 4 years, 75 percent of the soldiers will be retired without facilities like pension. Provision has been made to keep the remaining 25 percent regular in the Indian Army. Under the scheme, about 46,000 soldiers will be recruited in the three services this year. The eligibility age for selection will be between 17 and a half years to 21 years and will be named as Agniveer.
