New Delhi: While the National Register of Citizens (NRC) issue continues to raise storm across the country, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament Uday Pratap Singh in Lok Sabha on Thursday asked the government to bring a population control law to ensure a two-child norm for a family.

Mr Singh made the demand during the Zero Hour and stated that countries like China have taken steps to check population growth.

The BJP MP, who represents the Hoshangabad in Madhya Pradesh, demanded that a law should be enacted to control population and ensure that a family can have only two children. He highlighted population growth in the country and stated that this led to various problems, including on the employment front.

Mr Singh said that the Narendra Modi government, which has implemented demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST), should also come out with such a law and implement it throughout the country. He stated that countries like China took an appropriate step on the population front by formulating a one-child policy in 1979, and India should do the same, wherein every family can have only two children.

Meanwhile, PMK leader Anbumani Ramadoss raised concerns about the eligibility criteria set under the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) and claimed that even students who have failed in physics and chemistry subjects have qualified. There are around 1.20 lakh medical seats but the number of students who cleared the

NEET were more than 7 lakh, he noted. During the Zero Hour, AAP member Dharamvir Gandhi raised issues concerning Centre-state relations and claimed that the states have become “beggars” before the Centre.
