Mumbai, Jun 18: Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Saturday extended her support to the 'Agnipath' scheme which has met with violent protests across the country. She appreciated that new recruitment scheme, saying that many nations have made army training compulsory.

On her Instagram account, Ranaut said, "Many nations like Israel have made army training compulsory for all their youth, few years everyone gives to the army to learn life values like discipline, nationalism and what it means to guard your country's borders, #agneepathscheme has deeper meanings than just getting building careers, employment or making money..."

"In olden days everyone went to Gurukul its almost like that it's just that they getting paid to do it, shocking percentage of youth that's getting destroyed in drugs and PUBg needs these reforms...appreciate the government for taking these initiatives," Kangana added.

The upper age limit was raised to 23 years on Thursday as the protests against the new model for enrolment of soldiers into the Army, Navy and Air Force spread.
