PATNA: Disapproving Union minister and BJP leader Prahlad Singh Patel’s recent statement that a law for population control would be brought soon, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar on Monday said population can not be controlled only by making a law. Nothing happens by just framing rules and regulations.
Citing an example of China, Nitish said the neighbouring country did so many things to control its population. “First, it (China) framed the one-child norm, again the two-children norm. Now, it is going to revise its two-children norm, making provision for more in certain regions. Only making a law would not bring any major improvement,” Nitish, who heads a coalition government with support of ally BJP in Bihar, said. The CM was responding to media queries after his weekly public interaction programme “Janata Ke Darbar Mein Mukhyamantri.”
While talking to reporters in Raipur on Tuesday (May 31) the Union minister of state for food processing industries Patel said a law for population control would be brought soon in Parliament.
Asked for his reaction over Patel’s remarks, Nitish said, “It could be people’s opinion. Everyone knows how I have been working on the issue of population control? How I brought down Bihar’s total fertility rate (TFR) to 3 from 4.3 (in year 2005). Educating girls is more important. We made a detailed study in 2012-13 and concluded that where women would be educated, the TFR would be low. In study, we also found that when the wife is matriculate, the TFR is 2. When the wife is intermediate, the TFR is smaller.”
Nitish also said, “Every person has his/her own opinion over this issue. My opinion is that only framing a law for population control will not benefit. Make a consensus among people and create awareness over the issue.”
“People should also be informed how an economically-weak state like Bihar brought down its TFR to 3 from 4.3, and if we continued to work on the same pattern, we will bring down the TFR to 2 in the next five to seven years. When girls will be educated, then there would be no need of bringing new laws for population control,” Bihar CM asserted.
Nitish further pointed out that when he went to China on a week-long trip, he closely studied the effect of its population control policy by interacting with Chinese people. “The person who had only one child, was not giving attention to any other people. I also learnt from the experience of the Chinese man who was allotted to assist me during the visit,” he said.
The Bihar CM further advised the governments to execute works in such a way that it would become the nature (habit) of all people to adopt the norms of population control.
Just three days ago, Bihar minister and BJP leader Neeraj Kumar Singh ‘Babloo’ made an attempt to embarrass its ally JD(U) by demanding enforcement of population control policy in Bihar.
“Caste-based headcount is fine but now there is a need for enforcement of population control policy in Bihar in view of the population explosion,” Babloo said inviting a sharp and quick reaction from state JD-U president Umesh Kushwaha, who said, “There is no need of any population control policy in the state.”
