The former Union Minister has expressed his views amid the ongoing debate on the statement of UP CM Yogi Adityanath. On the occasion of World Population Day, the yogi had expressed concern over population imbalance. “When we talk about family planning, we have to make sure that the population control program is carried out successfully,” he said. However, a situation of population imbalance should not arise.
“We all know that for the last five years, public awareness programs have been running across the country on population stability,” Yogi said. Population on a certain scale is also an achievement of the society, but this achievement is only when the society can achieve the state of health and wellness. This statement of the yogi was followed by a debate. Attempts were also made to give it a religious color.
