NEW DELHI: An Indian minister on Sunday said there is an urgent need to make laws for ‘nasbandi’ (sterilisation) in the country to control the population.

The Union Minister Giriraj Singh had advocated sterilisation to control population growth at a function in his parliamentary constituency Nawada.

According to Hindustan Times, Singh said the India needs a strong population control act including sterilisation as the country was facing a population boom impeding development and social stability.

“India has 17 % of the world population and adds population equal to Australia each year. The country only has 2.5% of land mass of the globe with only 4.2% of water resources. In this scenario, the population explosion in the country is proving to be a big roadblock for development. We need population control act to tide over the problem,” he said.

Singh is the second senior BJP leader in Bihar who has advocated sterilisation after demonetisation. Last week, former union minister and senior BJP leader Sanjay Paswan said sterilisation will help control the population of the country.
