Taking a dig at yoga guru Baba Ramdev over his "third child" remark, AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi on Monday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi should not "lose his right to vote just because he is the 3rd kid".
In a hard-hitting and sarcastic Twitter post, Owaisi wrote, "There is no law preventing people from saying downright unconstitutional things, but why do Ramdev's ideas receive undue attention?".
Criticising Ramdev over his Yoga poses, he further wrote, "That he can do a thing with his stomach or move about his legs shouldn't mean Narendra Modi lose his right to vote just because he's the 3rd kid".

During a press conference in Haridwar, Ramdev on Sunday opined that India is not ready to deal with its population explosion and suggested some measures like denying voting rights and other government services to the third children onwards. The yoga guru stated the country's population should not be allowed to go beyond 150 crore.
Prime Minister Modi, who was born on 17 September, 1950, to a family of grocers in Vadnagar of Gujarat’s Mehsana district, is the third of six children of Damodardas Mulchand Modi and Heeraben Modi.
