Bihar deputy CM Sushil Modi there would be no need for family planning if education reaches everyone
Government should educate more people to control the population of the country as 'illiterate people have more children', said Bihar Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi.
Education is the solution to every problem, said Bihar deputy CM Sushil Modi
If you want to control the number of people in a family, educate them, he added
India is the second most populated country in the world
Muzaffarpur: Government should educate more people in order to control the population of the country as "illiterate people have more children", claimed Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Tuesday.
"Shiksha har samasya ka samadhaan hai. Agar parivaar ki sankhya ghatana hai to shikshit kar dijiye. Koi parivar niyojan ki zaroorat nahi hai," Modi said at an event in Muzaffarpur. ("Education is the solution to every problem. If you have to control the number of people in a family, then you must educate them. There is no need for family planning")
"Those who are educated have fewer children and those who are less educated have more children," he added.
India is the second largest nation by population and it is estimated that the population will exceed China's population by 2024.
The World Bank estimates that India's population will be around 1.73 billion by 2050, from the current 1.32 billion. Of these 173 crore people, 27 crore will be elderly, aged 65 and above.
A single incident could be the spark of a revolution in a totalitarian country like China. It is this spark which has compelled Beijing to spend billions on monitoring and suppressing its population
This comes after two Chinese coast guard ships blocked two Filipino boats on Tuesday and a third coast guard ship sprayed high-pressure streams of water on the boats
The Chinese bluff needs to be called off and they must be reminded that as in Nathu La in 1967, Sumdrong Chu and Wangdung in 1986, Doklam in 2019 and now Galwan Valley in June 2020, Indian troops will administer a medicine of their choice on them, if required.
