New Delhi [India], Oct 15 (ANI): Hitting Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Mohan Bhagwat over his remark on ‘demographic imbalance’, Communist Party of India (Marxist) Politburo member Brinda Karat said on Friday that he was hiding facts and wanted to impose his own theory on population control.
Speaking to ANI, Brinda Karat said, “Why is Bhagwat not keeping the truth in front of the country? It’s the mantra of RSS to hide the truth and you want to implement your theory. There were inequalities in all communities in the past The total The fertility rate of women in all communities is declining, which Bhagwat wants to hide Experience shows that social and economic development is the most effective contraceptive.
“Now you see in Bihar, which is a backward state, the average Hindu women have a fertility rate of 2.9%. In Assam there is some development, the fertility rate for Muslim women is 2 .4%. So Bhagwat should be clear about that,” she added.
She further alleged that the RSS was trying to divide India by hiding the reality on every issue.
Bhagwat, expressing concern over the “demographic imbalance” in the country during his annual speech at Vijaya Dashami on Friday, said the country’s population policy should be reconsidered.
“The news of the persecution of indigenous Hindus, increasing criminalization and growing pressure on them to flee their areas where unbalanced population growth has surfaced. The violence that erupted following the elections in West Bengal and the pitiful condition of the Hindu people there can also be attributed to the appeasement of the barbarian elements by the government and the imbalance of the population.Therefore, a policy that applies to all groups equally is imperative,” Bhagwat said.
