The Samajwadi Party and Congress have accused the government of moving forward before the next assembly elections. The opposition parties have declared that they will not stand in the by-elections.
Despite strong opposition, Yogi Adityanath insists that he will not back down on the population control bill. The state’s population is growing rapidly. The state’s population exceeds Rs 22 million. This is a challenging situation, even in the healthcare sector. Government sources said there were problems, including food shortages. The government defends itself by highlighting the circumstances, including the spread of Kovid.
The UP Law Commission has until July 19 to comment on the draft of the Population Control Bill. With the implementation of the new law, couples with more than two children will have a strict control. They do not receive government subsidies or government-assisted welfare plans. There will also be restrictions on applying for government jobs. Even if there are more than two children, the total ration benefit for a family is limited to four. It will also bring control to contest local elections. At the same time, there are reports that the government will provide more benefits to families with only two children.
