Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Wednesday that qualified ex-servicemen will be given lateral entry into civil service if Congress is voted to power and the central paramilitary forces will also be opened up to them.

"Our ex-servicemen are India's pride and must be given the respect they deserve. We will allow qualified ex-servicemen lateral entry into the Civil Services. The Central Armed Police Forces will be opened up to ex-servicemen under the age of 40," Gandhi said in a tweet.
