Why population management has fallen of the Government and Election agendas?India is the second most populous country in the world and by 2024 we are set to overtake China. In terms of land area, China is three times larger than India.
I remember a few years ago, many reports of the rapidly rising Indian population and its impact on the country.Family planning and population management was very much part of the discussions in mass media and Government policy.
These days, I don't such adverts or information updates in the common papers or channels. There are some many policies highlighted by so many political parties but population management does not figure in it.
Have we become so self-sufficient that we can forget about the growing numbers. I raise this because we are already struggling for jobs, place to live and resources are getting scarce.
