Fresh initiative to contain population

07, Jul 2017 By shakeel ahmad

KANPUR: What the Union government proposes, the UP government follows too. If the centre’s Mission Parivar Vikas lays focus on the much-talked family planning, the state government does not lag behind in initiating its schemes related to the family control methods. Would it not be better if the families were assisted with monetary mode? The good quality financial condition can only bring desired improvements of the poor families which draw the attention of the governments at both the stages. Afterwards, they should ably proceed to think on the different lines of restricting the size of their families.

There is nothing fresh in this ensuing initiative coming on the World Population Day (June 11). The past experiences have already exposed this stark reality. In a bid to decrease the country’s population, the number has presently reached a higher point. We are not much below the Chinese figure. This can be said to be just another way to fritter away the government’s money on an inaccessible target. Just as a huge amount of money was spent on cleaning of the Ganges, so as the Mission Parivar Vikas may go with the similar dismal fate.

This new operation will cover 145 districts of as many as seven states where the fertility rate is quite higher. Side by side, the UP government also plans to put into practice its family planning programmes. After all, this populous state along with Bihar, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, MP, Assam and Jharkhand contribute 28 percent of the country’s total population. Its eleven districts have a total fertility rate of four. Nai Sarkar’s Nai Pahal is to be presented in a novel way with the key emphasis on the better access to the available contraceptives in order to control the constantly increasing population growth. How can natural procedures be checked by the human hands?
