NEW DELHI – Massive outrage after senior BJP leader Kailash Vijaywargiya on Sunday offered to appoint ‘agniveers’ as security guards at the party offices after their retirement from the army.
“I will give preference to an Agniveer to hire him as security in BJP office, even you can…People have faith in armymen, ” said BJP National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya.
His remark was picked up and flashed everywhere on the internet as well as on several TV news channels, following which the senior BJP leader was forced to clarify his earlier comment by tweeting on his official Twitter page. He said that his statement was clearly “distorted” by the media.
“Agniveer will definitely be trained and committed to duty, his excellence will be utilized in whatever field he will go after completing his service in the army. That is clearly what I meant,” he tweeted.
