Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath should clarify this first (if he is for or against this bill?)”

“According to National Family Health Survey (NFHS) data of 1999-2000 (another problem is that recent data is not yet published), the total fertility rate (TFR) among Hindus was 1 .2% and Muslims 1.66%.I challenge the BJP to tell me if this data is true or not.If they think it is true then why is this bill in place? “, said Owaisi.

Owaisi further asserted that as far as the population projection ratio is concerned, the population of the country is in continuous decline.

“According to the data I have, the demographic dividend of Uttar Pradesh will last until 2050. 65% of the population is under the age of 35. Why has the Center not thought of giving job at this section Several people have lost their lives due to covid mismanagement There are job losses, business losses etc. and the government of Uttar Pradesh is busy talking about control of the population,” All India party leader Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen said.

The undernourished PHC centers are fewer in the state Community health care centers have a 50% deficit in the state Dead bodies are floating in the river People are dying due to lack of oxygen during the pandemic The government has no answers to these questions!

Taking to Twitter, Owaisi also said, “The population control ‘law’ is against the basic right of the people of India. In states like Bihar UP, MP majority of COVID cases have not been counted. The government failed to prevent the 2nd wave, then deserted the needy Indians. Forget the treatment, he didn’t even care to COUNT correctly,” Owaisi tweeted.

He had said that each community had been taken care of in the population policy 2021-2030. These developments come months ahead of the Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections to be held next year.
