JAMMU, Feb 14: Shiv Sena will launch a large-scale agitation to pressurize the Central Government to bring population control law in the country.
“Jammu – Shivsena is going to organize a signature campaign to garner support for population control law and will pressurize Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make population control law which is urgent need of the hour,” said Shiv Sena J&K president, Manish Sahni while addressing media persons here today.
Sahni said with population control law, the country can get rid of unemployment, inflation and economic slowdown to a great extent. He further said that considering this law as essential the party’s Rajya Sabha MP Anil Desai introduced a bill on the Population Control Act in the House last day and asked to deny the benefits of Government welfare schemes if there are more than two children and demanded legislation to make education, employment a priority in case of two or less children.
He said that the Shiv Sena is also worried about the declining proportion of women and demanded that the Government should bear all the expenses of their daughters in a family of two children. Sahni said that he along with Rajeshwaranand ji Maharaj from Sant Samaj had jointly written a letter to the Prime Minister last year demanding population control law.
He said Shiv Sena will suppress the bill introduced by its MP by making it a law and for this the Party is going to start a signature campaign not only in J&K but the whole country to bring the voice of the public to the Prime Minister.
Shiv Sena president Mahila wing Meenakshi Chibber, working president Ashwani Gupta, general secretary Vikas Bakshi, vice president Harsh Kumar Gupta, Surjeet Singh, secretary Raj Singh and joint secretary Raju Salaria were also present on the occasion.
