Jammu & Kashmir BJP leader Yudhvir Sethi has pitched for a population control policy in the region similar to the one proposed in Uttar Pradesh.
“I am impressed by the new population policy 2021-30 by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday. J&K should take a cue from it and go for a similar policy in the union territory to ensure population control which is a prerequisite for ultimate growth and progress of any region,” he told reporters here.
The JK BJP vice president said that Adityanath has led the way in this regard as the UP state law commission has already prepared the draft of the Uttar Pradesh Population (Control, Stabilization, and Welfare) Bill-2021, on which the UP government has invited suggestions from the public till July 19.
He stressed J&K should also pave the way for the adoption of similar legislation as overpopulation is a curse and cause behind so many problems including poverty, joblessness, inflation, etc.
