All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday launched a scathing attack on RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s call for implementation of two-child policy. Owaisi, who was addressing a public meeting in Nizamabad ahead of the Telangana Municipal elections, asked Bhagwat about the number of youths who have been given jobs in the country. AIMIM chief took jibe at the Modi government over lack of jobs saying 36 youths committed suicide per day in 2018 over employment issues.
Asaduddin Owaisi, AIMIM: RSS' Mohan Bhagwat Sahab said to make two child policy. Arrey tum naukriyan kitno ko diye wo bolo na. 36 bachche 2018 mein roz khudkhushi kiye, batao uspe kya kahenge aap?Bharat mein 60% abadi 40 saal se kam umr bachchon ki hai, unki baat nahi karenge. pic.twitter.com/DuSGeAdqoX— ANI (@ANI) January 18, 2020
Owaisi went on to add that more than 60 per cent of India’s population is below 40 years of age and said that the RSS chief won’t comment on these issues.
Earlier, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) had said its next area of focus will be to seek policy intervention for the implementation of a two-child norm in the country.
“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”, Bhagwat had said.
When asked about the country’s population, the Bhagwat said a policy to tackle the problem was the need of the hour.
Moreover, the polling for 120 municipalities and nine municipal corporations will be held on January 22 and the results would be declared on January 25 in Telangana. Moreover, AIMIM has already 3 wards of the total 3,052 wards that will go to polls on January 22. As many as 80 candidates have been unanimously elected in the absence of a contest. The other 77 have gone to the kitty of Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS).
