Lucknow: Yoga guru Ramdev has an advise to bring population of country under control. According to him, the government should snatch away the voting rights of people who go for more than two children. His statement comes a few days ahead of the announcement of the schedule of Lok Sabha Elections 2019 by Election Commission of India.
Speaking at an event in Aligarh, Ramdev said, “To control population of the country, voting rights, jobs and treatment facilities should be taken away from people who give birth to more than two kids and whether they are Hindus or Muslims. Then only the population will be controlled.”
Addressing the gathering at the inauguration of Patanjali garment in the district, the Yoga guru said, “Those who have more than two children, their voting rights should be taken away and they shouldn’t be allowed to contest elections.” He also said that such people should not be allowed to use government schools and hospitals. “Population will be controlled automatically,” he asserted.
Ramdev, who himself is a bachelor, added that people who have more than two children should not be given government jobs as well.
This was not the first time when the Yoga guru had made such statement. Earlier last year in November, he said that people like him, who do not get married, should be accorded special honours.“Is desh mein jo hamari tarah se vivah na kare unka vishesh samman hona chahiye, aur vivah kare, to 2 se jyada santaan paida kare to uski voting right nahi honi chahiye (In this country, people like me, who never get married, should receive a special honour. Those who get married and produce more than two children should be denied voting rights),” Ramdev had said at an event.
“In the present scenario, the total population of the country has already reached more than 1.5 crores. In such a case, giving birth to more than two children can ultimately become a matter of grave concern. Today, we should make sure that every person in the country is aware of the excess population in the country,” he said while justifying the statement.
