Amid population concerns; BJP legislator advocates ‘more children’ for Hindus
Amid India’s massive population growth a cause of concern, a BJP lawmaker advocates having more children.
BJP legislator Vikram Saini, from Muzaffarnagar, has gone ahead to urge the Hindus to produce more children until a law for population control comes into existence.
Saini, who represents Khatauli constituency of the district, made these remarks while addressing a population control campaign program.
A video of the BJP MLA urging his Hindu supporters to have more children also surfaced on the social media.
On the need to adopt a two-child policy, the BJP leader said that only Hindus have accepted the policy, while others have not.
Saini has earlier too made controversial statements.
It was only in January when he said that “Hindustan is for Hindus” while asking Muslims to go to Pakistan.
Saini’s controversial remarks have come at a time when a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking directions to the Union government to adopt ‘two-child policy’ across the country.
The PIL also urged the top court to implement the two-child policy norms throughout the country.
