RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat makes strong pitch for ‘two-child policy’
“We have been advocating this for quite some time now and want that the country should have a policy on the number of children a couple can have.” RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat told a gathering of volunteers.
New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Saturday advocated for two-child policy in the country, saying that population control is the need of hour. He said that the Sangh will seek policy intervention for its implementation, however final call lies with the Centre.
“We have been advocating this for quite some time now and want that the country should have a policy on the number of children a couple can have. But then it is for the Centre to take a call and decide whether it wants to enact a law on the issue,” RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat is said to have told a select group of the organisation’s volunteers in Moradabad.
Speaking on Ram Mandir issue, the RSS chief said that its role was limited to getting green signal for the temple. Now that the trust is being formed to oversee temple construction, the Sangh will detach itself from the issue.
NCP chief fires back at Bhagwat
Reacting to Mohan Bhagwat’s suggestion for pollution control, the NCP leader and cabinet minister in Maharashtra govt Nawab Malik said that some states already have such law in place.

Taking dig at Bhagwat’s remarks, Malik said, “If Bhagwat Ji wants to forcefully implement vasectomies then let Modiji make such a law and make people undergo vasectomy. We saw in the past what happened when vasectomy was implemented. Let’s see how this law will be passed,” he added.
