New Delhi: Union Minister and BJP leader Giriraj Singh has said that the country may face another partition in 1947 like it saw a partition on the basis of religion way back in 1947.

Pointing that the population has gone up from 33 crore to 135.7 crore in these 72 years, Singh said that the “population explosion of divisive forces is dangerous”.

“At present, there is uproar over discussion on Article 35-A. In times to come, it will become impossible to talk about one India,” he tweeted.

Recently, in an interview to Zee Hindustan, Singh had raised concern over the issue of increasing population and had called for a debate on the matter.

“Increasing population is a big issue in India. There should be a debate from sadak (road) to sansad (Parliament) on population control in the country. There should also be a debate on the definition of minorities. If a strong law is not made on population control then the country will suffer. We need to raise our voice,” he had said.
