Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Mandsaur in Madhya Pradesh Sudhir Gupta has made a controversial statement saying that people like Bollywood actor Aamir Khan are behind India’s population imbalance. The video of his statement has also surfaced, which is now becoming very viral on social media.
Taking the name of actor Aamir Khan, the BJP MP said that people like Aamir Khan are responsible for the imbalance in the population of the country, which is the country’s misfortune. Sudhir Gupta said that Aamir Khan left his first wife Reena Dutta with two children, Kiran Rao with one child and now, at the age of becoming grandfather, he is looking for a third wife. Is this the message of a hero? He further said that those who claim that people like Khan have no brains for job other than selling eggs’ were correct.
It is worth noting that in view of the increasing population on World Population Day, the demand for taking drastic steps has intensified. The Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh has announced population policy. At the same time, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has also talked about taking a decision on the population policy soon.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath released the ‘Uttar Pradesh Population Policy 2021-2030’ on the occasion of ‘World Population Day’ on Sunday. Significantly, according to a draft of the proposed population control bill, violators of the two-child policy in Uttar Pradesh will be barred from contesting local body elections, applying for government jobs, promotion and receiving any kind of government subsidy will be denied.
