On the sideline of the fitness test, Centre in Charge of the Agnipath Pre Recruitment Training Centre Heirok Laishram Rajmani stated that in a first in Manipur, the Agnipath pre recruitment training center was launched at Heirok on July 3 this year under the guidance and supervision of Heirok AC MLA Thokchom Radheshyam.

MLA Radheshyam who himself served as an IPS officer before joining politics had launched the center at his assembly constituency as he knew that the Agnipath scheme would encourage a sense of nationalism and patriotism in the youths ahead of developing their skills, spirit of teamwork, discipline, and characters, Rajmani added.

Since the launching of the centre amid several protests from opposition parties, the Agnipath pre recruitment training center Heirok has been  giving as many as 450 youths  from Heirok, who want to become Agniveers (candidates selected under Agnipath scheme), free training to clear the recruitment examination, he informed. 

Rajmani also recalled that the MLA Thokchom Radheshyam himself took part during the training programme several times and instructed the youths on Hindi and English languages. Moreover, all the expenditures for the diet of all the trainee youths had been borne by the MLA himself just to encourage them, he said.
