Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday told officials that while enforcing population control measures, they should keep in mind population balance and religious demography, saying otherwise it could lead to chaos and anarchy.

Speaking at a function to mark the World Population Day in Lucknow, Adityanath said, “When we talk about family planning and population stabilisation, we have to keep in mind that population control programme should go ahead, but the situation of jan sankhiki asuntalan (population imbalance) should not arise… It should not be that the rate of increase of population of a group of people is more and their percentage is more, while in the stabilisation of the population of some people who are native residents, we maintain the population balance through awareness and enforcement.”

Calling this kind of situation worrisome, Adityanath said: “In the countries where such situation of population imbalance arises, it affects the religious demography, and after a while, chaos and anarchy start taking place.”

Therefore, whenever we talk about population stabilisation, it should rise above every caste, religion, language, and region, he said, adding “awareness should be created equally”.
