India’s rising population a ticking time bomb, says Togadia

RAIPUR, 19 Feb: Former Vishva Hindu Parishad leader Pravin Togadia on Sunday described India’s rising population as a “ticking time bomb” and stressed the need to formulate a law to prevent its explosion and the resulting adverse effects.
He also expressed hope that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah would introduce a law for population control and the uniform civil code ahead of next year’s parliamentary elections.
Togadia, president of the Antarrashtriya Hindu Parishad, was talking to reporters in Chhattisgarh’s capital Raipur, ahead of addressing a public meeting in Basna area of the state’s Mahasamund district.
When asked about the demand to bring a population control law, Togadia said, “The rising population and population imbalance are a time bomb, and when it explodes, it will lead to civil wars in cities and villages. Therefore, in order to prevent such a situation, there is a need to formulate a population control law.”
“I believe that the prime minister and the home minister will go to the 2024 election after formulating laws regarding population control, UCC and construction of temples in Kashi and Mathura. These moves will not only protect Hindus, but also their (BJP’s) votes,” he added. (PTI)
