Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had announced on May 30 that he was going to cancel this scheme. However, the results of the Lok Sabha elections had not come then and the final phase of voting was yet to take place.

Rahul Gandhi had said, “We are going to cancel the Agniveer scheme. The Prime Minister has converted the soldiers into labourers. We will transform the soldiers into soldiers again.”

Earlier, in a rally in Patna on May 27, Rahul Gandhi had clarified the Congress’ stand on Agniveer Yojana and said, “The first task is for you… for the youth of India… this Agniveer Yojana, it should not be implemented. We are going to throw it in the dustbin. We don’t want two types of martyrs. We don’t want two types of soldiers.Every soldier will get the status of martyr. Every soldier will get pension. Every soldier will get a canteen and the Government of India will protect every soldier. We do not want such an India where you make the poor people Agniveer and give pension, canteen and all facilities to the rich people. We need a young man. We are ending the Agniveer scheme, we are canceling it.”
