Population control biggest challenge before country: Yogi

| | Lucknow

Expressing concern over the rising population of India, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that religion and caste should not influence population control as the country's huge population has emerged as a big problem for its progress and the need of the hour was to control population.

"Population control is the biggest challenge before the country and is in the interest of every individual. There should be no politics on religion or caste lines over population control," Yogi said while addressing a gathering after flagging off a rally to mark International Population Day in Lucknow on Wednesday.

The Chief Minister said that India was adding a 'new Australia' every year to its population and the immediate need was to control the unbridled rise. "Unless this was done it would be impossible to provide basic facilities to the citizens," he said.
