Despite the high incidences of drug addiction among Punjabi youth, Army is getting the best lot from Punjab even now. This was revealed by Deputy Director general (recruitment, Jalandhar Zone) Col Atul Bisht after reviewing the army recruitment rally going on at Guru Nanak Stadium. Col Bisht stated that youth is hardworking and even are physically fit as well, but still many fail to get shortlisted because of lack of preparations.
Many youngsters just walk in the stadium to run for fun, which is very non-serious attempt. The authorities did not rule out that youngsters are coming without proper preparations at home and because of this, they fail to clear the tests. The Colonel maintained that transparency is a lot in their recruitment process and the whole system is computerised with biometric identification system.
However he did not ruleout the role of touts and he cautioned the youth of the agents who make false promises to them for confirming their entry in the army. Col said the army has arrested two touts in Ferozepur that were duping youths for their entry in army.
A number of NGOs and religious organisations have organised langars to facilitate youth taking part in rally. Langar and shelter were arranged by durga mata mandir trust, gurudwara dukhniwaran sahib and few more NGOs. The army lauded their efforts.
