Dhillon was addressing a press conference at the election office of Congress state chief and Ludhiana Lok Sabha nominee Amarinder Singh Raja Warring.

Dhillon added that due to the scheme, the youth were exploring other options instead of joining the army. He added that when the country is surrounded by “enemy countries, such schemes could prove dangerous”. He alleged that the scheme was launched to benefit corporates as the companies would hire retired agniveers in their security.

Dhillon skipped the questions about MLA and party’s Sangrur nominee Sukhpal Singh Khaira.
