New Delhi (13/10/2019): The (population control march) ‘Padyatra’ launched by Union Minister Giriraj Singh to raise awareness about population control reached Delhi today on, October 13.
Inaugurating the three-day rally organised by ‘Jansankhya Samadhan Santhan’ on Friday, Singh at the sidelines of the event said, “Chinese President is in India today and China has shown to the world that growing population is an obstacle to development.”
More than 500 people marched for the cause. Chariots with social messages about the benefits of having a low population were also put up. The message of cleanliness, plastic discharge and ‘Swach Bharat’ was also given during the journey.
Giriraj Singh reiterated that the law for population control should be a strict one. “To bring in such a law, the government seeks the support of citizens. People are very much aware about the issue and so, the government should pass a law to address it,” said the minister, adding, “The ‘padyatra’ doesn’t target any religion or set of beliefs. We want this law equally applied to all.”
The participants included farmers and other citizens who were led by Parliamentarian Rajendra Agarwal and founder of ‘Jansankhya Samadhan’ Anil Chaudhary.
