The need for legislation to be passed to regulate the nation’s rapidly growing population is growing. In this regard, the Supreme Court has sent a notice to the Central Government today, i.e. on Friday.
The Central Government has been asked for a response in this regard, and a bench of Justices KM Joseph and Hrishikesh Roy has tagged the case with the pertinent outstanding petitions. Let us inform you that the Supreme Court has taken cognizance of a petition calling for a law on population control that was submitted to the court.
According to the petition submitted by Dandi Swami Jitendranand, General Secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti, the population of the nation is growing daily, yet our resources are limited and we cannot support the load of an ever-increasing population. The government must take into account the effects of growing unemployment, poverty, health problems, and a hampered food supply on the nation.
The central government has been urged in the petition to establish the necessary regulations and lay out guidelines for the imposition of a population tax in order to safeguard the fundamental rights of the millions of citizens whose lives have been adversely affected by the nation’s overpopulation issue.
