New Delhi: An NGO, Rashtriya Nirman Sanghatan (RNS) is going to launch a nation-wide rally ‘Bharat Bachao Maha Rath Yatra’ with a tagline ‘Hum Do Hamare Do to Sabke Do’ from February 18 to curb population in India.
The rally will begin from Kashmir on February 18 and will conclude on April 22, 2018 after covering around 500 cities and 2 lakh village of the country in Delhi, said National President of Rashtriya Nirman Sanghatan Suresh Chouhanke while addressing media on Monday at Press Club of India here.
“Owing to the robust population, unemployment, corruption and illiteracy are an epitome in India. And to curb it, we need a uniform Population Control Bill,” said National President of Rashtriya Nirman Sanghatan Suresh Chouhanke adding that they have been receiving huge appreciation from political parties.
In 70 days of Rath Yatra the organisation has planned to hold around 1000 event across the country and also run an online and offline signature campaign to support the Population Control Bill.
“Besides signature campaign, we will also take suggestions from the people to prepare the Population control Bill and we have planned to engage at least 25 core people,” said Chouhanke.
According to 1941 senses, the population of India was around 32 crore at the time of independence but after 70 years we have reached around 130 crore and it will reach around 140 crore by 2026.
“Our population have been increasing with a growth of 20% each decade. To ease off the growth, we want a bill from the Union Government to curb it,” he added.
