BJP MP urges Modi to table Population Control Bill in Parliament

New Delhi, Aug 10 (IANS): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Anil Agarwal has urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to introduce the Population Control Bill in the next session of the Parliament.

In a letter addressed to Modi, the BJP's Rajya Sabha MP said "population explosion" needs to be checked, and the only way to make India 'Atmanirbhar' or self-reliant to is to introduce the population control law.

"Everyone wants the population control law... be Hindu or Muslim. This law will eliminate most of the country's problems. China (the world's most populous country) will soon be left behind by the rate at which the population in India is increasing," Agarwal told IANS.

"Arable land in the country is also continuously decreasing. If there is no population control law in time, many problems will arise," the BJP MP said.

The letter addressed to PM Modi reads: "On August 15, 2019, you talked about population control while addressing the country from the Red Fort. The time has now come... I urge you to bring an effective population control bill in the next session of the Parliament."

Agarwal said Modi stays firm on his promise -- whether it is on Triple Talaq, Article 370 or Ram temple.

    The way it is going 1 child or fewer children, same sex marriages, abortion and due to side effects of vaccines may be childlessness and autism, what would be the population after 4 to 5 generation or in coming 80 to 100 years in this vast world? May be 50% to further slowly extinction of human race? Or due to greed only super rich and their race remaining on this earth ?

    To all those clamoring for this bill, do your homework. The Total Fertility Rate (TFR) is below replacement levels, in all states, except the BIMARU states - Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, and Uttar Pradesh, and it is shown in all TFR statistics and projections of the Government of India. If TFR is below replacement levels, we are actually not growing and the population explosion fears are unfounded. This law will only introduce more coercion and interference in people's lives, and is not going to change the shape of actual statistics. Those who think controlling population will only help in the long run for the future generation, fail to understand that an aging population, will only make India lose its working population faster than becoming a middle-level economy. Thus the benefit lasts many only last one generation. Think about what is happening in countries like Japan with a significant old population.

    Do not go by your gut feelings, and fears circulated by lawmakers who do not do their homework. Educate yourself properly.

    The population threshold is also likely to be based on replacement levels. So if people are also producing at replacement levels why are you concerned with the Bill?. Anyhow it is not adversely affecting anybody. You should know that there are pockets within India like Mallapuarm which has a very high rate of growth of population. So that will mean we can curtail regional imbalances caused.

    So answer my question. What is to be done to a couple if they have more children. After all it is their wish. What do you think must be done to their children ? If you want to have few children or have none at all, it is your wish.

    After all rights do not come from government. Rights come from nature and governments have duties to protect them. It is the responsibility of the parents to provide for their children, and not of the government. A family and not the government is what makes a civilization.

    What do you mean by their wish?. A personal wish should be subservient to the collective good of the country. India is highly overpopulated. We share our resources together. We have a common water table. Each new born is a contributory to carbon emissions. There are many punitive ways to discourage the growth of population. We can disenfranchise the parents. We can cut the subsidies for their children. We can collect carbon tax from the parents.

    It's not only for Govt job, but the bill is better for the Indian economy as whole. So we all must support the bill..

    But for BJP, it's just an agenda, as there are no other issues left now to play for vote bank.
    They will call TV debates, and try to prove the opposition parties and certain section as opposing the bill.

    "JP MP urges Modi to table Population Control Bill in Parliament"

    Congress once tried and there followed party's debacle.
    Indira/Sanjay Gandhi were labelled as traitors and finally resulted in emergency rule.
    These days political parties are more interested in imposing party grip and expand party popularity for political gain.
    Modiji has the capacity and enough popularity to convince the people and should try to support the bill by all means. It is better late than never. Mast act nor rather than regret later.

    First bring land acquisition bill. Specially acquisition of land for national highway, State highway, water canal, drainage line, gas line, water line, power line, railway line , power plant. If you bring this law nobody can go to court. Work will be done less money hand over the project with in one or two years no escalation of cost

    Definitely it is the need of the hour.
    I think only the Modi government will have the guts to implement this bill.

    2.5 billion in 1950 to 7.7 billion in 2019 is a huge leap. Everything else including global warming, lack of drinking water, plastic waste, extinction of animals, deforestation...all are related to exponential growth of human population. If we stick to our religious beliefs and keep on producing children, there should be someone who will control this.

    Very True. Our water tables are fast depleting. Rivers are going dry in summer. Pollution and plastic needs to be checked. If we love our next generation we should do this.
