New Delhi: The BJP and its ally Shiv Sena on Wednesday sought a “stringent law” for population control to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
Participating in a discussion on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Lok Sabha, Sanjay Jaiswal (BJP) said the country should bring in a “stringent law” to enforce birth control measures.
“We should call gurus (spiritual leaders) across religions and make them understand (the importance of population control) because this is impacting our population count,” Jaiswal said.
Bhavna Gawali (Shiv Sena) said if the country wants to achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) by 2030 then there is a need for effective birth control measures.
