Now coming to the Point the why Country needs to control its Population
- As per the United Nations, the population of India in 2030 will be 1billion 50 crores.
- UN also said that in 2024 India will have more population than China.
- The Actual growth rate of India Population is 1.02%
- Worlds 17.71 % of people belongs to India
- In India, Every Minute 33 newborn babies are born
- India only has 2% of farming land
- Another alarming sign is that Country only has 4% of drinking water.
If India will not take impotent quantify towards the Population than in its residents will increase by 1billion 67 crores in 2050. These are the worries signs for India and the people who are living in India. Increasing population will not only make a harsh impact on India. If People will not understand the problem of population than it will be puzzling for nay government to develop the nation. It was Congress who bring the Family Planning policy it was not implemented by them. It’s very impotent to control the population for our future generations.
- If we failed to control the population than citizens of India will emigrate to another country’s for their bright future.
