NEW DELHI, Sep.5, 2022 (TBINN)
Supreme Court has issued notice to the Centre, as well as the Law Commission, on a petition seeking law for population control.
The Apex Court tagged the plea, filed by religious saint and General Secretary of Akhil Bhartiya Sant Samiti, Swami Jitendranand Saraswati, with other petitions seeking similar relief. The seer contended in his petition that half of the country’s problems were because of the pace with which the population in India was growing.
The government was neither able to provide employment to the ever-increasing population, nor was it able to meet their needs of food, shelter and water, he added.
