Can even resign to pressurise government for a population control law : union minister Giriraj Singh

Those who do not follow the law, their voting rights should be revoked, the minister said

Minister of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Giriraj Singh while participating in a program organised by Jansankya Samadhan Foundation in Noida said that population is becoming a hindrance in development and social harmony.

“For development and social harmony in the country, controlling the population is important,” said Singh. The Minister from Nawada constituency in Bihar said that a law is required to control the population. Singh was handed over a memorandum from the workers and office-bearers of the organisation to seek his support for the law. Showing solidarity in support of population control law, Singh said that he was even ready to resign also if needed. “I am ready to go to any extent for people’s awakening,” he said.

Singh cited the example of 22 Islamic countries where population control programmes are being carried out and expressed concern that in our country such programmes are linked to religion. He said that the law should apply to all equally and those who do not follow should be deprived of voting rights. “If the law says only two children are allowed, Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Buddhists, and all others should follow it. Those who do not follow the law, their voting rights should be revoked, action on their finances be taken, legal proceedings initiated against them”, Singh stressed.

The Union Minister told how population burdens the natural resources.”Until that happens, the country would face reducing land, water, worsening environment and limiting of other resources,” he said.

Referring to the incident of the exodus of around 200 Hindu families due to fear of the Muslim majority in the small town of Kairana in Shamli, Singh said that social harmony is witnessed only in areas where Hindus are in majority. He claimed that around 54 districts in the country and 21 districts in Uttar Pradesh have witnessed a drop in Hindu population over the years. “Wherever in the country the population of Hindus has gone down, social harmony has suffered a setback there,” he said.
