UP population control bill part of BJP’s ‘election propaganda’ ahead of assembly polls: SP MP

Terming the Uttar Pradesh population control bill as a part of the BJP's "election propaganda" ahead of assembly polls, local Samajwadi Party (SP) MP Shaqfiqur Rahman Barq has hit out at the state government, saying it should ban marriages if it wants to stabilise rising population. The Uttar Pradesh Population Policy 2021-2030 was unveiled on World Population Day on Sunday by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to steady the population in the state and reduce maternal and infant deaths in a time-bound manner while bringing down the gross fertility rate among women to 2.1 by 2026 and to 1.9 by 2030.
