The Uttar Pradesh Population Control Draft conveys Neo-Malthusianism, which refers to population control through the use of contraception, viewing it as essential for the survival of the earth’s human population. It rests on the observation that resources are limited and that growing populations could rapidly outstrip the provision of resources, including land and food.
It appears that hue and cry over the proposed draft on population control in Uttar Pradesh will continue to dominate up to 19 July.
The politicians are talking about its political angle. They seem to be relishing the new whiffs of the draft and smell it in their respective yards. They like the topic of rubbing one another’s noses into softer fur. They also like how they have strengthened to sneeze with their whole bodies.
They yearned to move to and fro their powerful hands and legs into the points of the defined draft as the time to run from one end to the next has been coming slowly but steadily.
The preamble of the draft Bill states that this is a Bill:
The covetous critics do make this critical matter a mountain of controversies. In a contracting population, the ratio between the working-age and dependent population gets disrupted, said the VHP, adding that in extreme cases, the one-child policy would lead to a situation where there is only one working-age adult to look after two parents and four grandparents.
The draft bill states that people having more than two children in the state would be debarred from contesting local body elections, applying for government jobs or receiving any kind of subsidy. The document says it is necessary to control and stabilise the state’s population for the promotion of sustainable development with more equitable distribution.
Yet, it does not ponder over those couples who do not have an issue? And also about those who marry twice or more for the male issue? Can population control check a balance in society?
However, what has been determined by the state government will be brought into a statute following the full procedures sooner or later. At present, UP follows Assam in the approach to toe the line of the saffron union. Though Sanjay Gandhi was also serious about population control and his action on the male circumcision had caused damage to his party immensely.
Indira Gandhi’s slogan “Hum do Hamare Do” was a precursor of the Yogi model. When China is reversing its policy of one child norm, how could it be beneficial to India? “If Nehru had brought the two-child norm in the year 1952, there would have been no problem today,” said one political activist.
When various European countries are providing citizenship to people of other countries, how will the situation improve in our heavily populated state of Uttar Pradesh? It seems that the idea of bifurcation of UP in several parts has not been ascertaining a good deal of help, so the unique idea of population control has been given rise to imprint its impression on the minds of the people.
Just as one United Kingdom-based group, Population Matters, campaigns to achieve a sustainable population, they said that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were role models for other families in Great Britain. They were even awarded for making a far more enlightened decision to only have two children and also for reducing their impact on the environment.
So as the advanced day’s vital message of two children resounds in the whole of Uttar Pradesh and India.
Further, Iran, confused with the country’s rising age of marriage and declining birth rates, had to pass a bill titled “population growth and supporting families”. It mandates the government to offer significant financial incentives for marriage and encourage people to have more than two children while limiting access to abortion.
