A young man from Rajasthan has run 350 km from Rajasthan’s Sikar to New Delhi to join protests held by Army aspirants at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday against the uncertainty in recruitment.
According to the reports, Suresh Bhichar, who hails from Rajasthan Nagaur district, ran for 50 hours to take part in the protest led by Army aspirants in New Delhi over the postponement of the recruitment exam.
“I am 24 years old. I have come from Nagaur district (Rajasthan). I have a desire to join the Indian Army. Not recruiting for 2 years. The youth of Nagaur, Sikar, Jhunjhunu are getting old. I have come to Delhi by running to increase the enthusiasm of youth,” said Suresh.
A video showing Suresh running on the highway has now gone viral:

The 24-year-old said he began running long distances to inspire youth to join the Army.
“I used to start the run at 4 in the morning and stopped only after reaching a petrol pump by 11 am, where I rested and received food from the Army aspirants in the nearby areas,” he added.
Suresh said he is preparing to join the Territorial Army (TA), even though his passion was to join the Indian Army. The youth further said that his parents are meeting his education expenses by selling their livestock.
Several young Army aspirants orchestrated a protest on Tuesday at Jantar Mantar against the delay in the recruitment process.
Many candidates reasoned that the Air Force has been actively recruiting candidates for the post of officers and the delay is only for the recruitment of non-officers.
