POPULATION the ignored TRUTH

India is the largest democratic country having population of 1,116,456,550 persons with a significant increasing trend. The area per person to live is decreasing because of the increasing population. During seventies Mrs. Indira Gandhi (PM) thought about the increasing population and to provide the enough food to everybody. She brought the programme of ‘Harit Kranti’ with a slogan “Adhik Ann Upjao”. In this programme the farmers were educated and motivated to use chemical fertilizers to get maximum crop leading to sufficient food for the Indian public. This was very successfully implemented. For the issue of population she introduced ‘Family Planning’ with a slogan “Hum Do Humare Do”. The Family & Health Ministry implemented this programme. But for family planning Mr. Sanjay Gandhi took some hard steps. He wanted to implement this programme by force, which was not the democratic way of family planning. In democracy one has to mobilize, to make realize the importance of the family planning in such a highly populated country. This forceful implementation of family planning led to the horrible defeat of the Congress party and Janta Party came in to the power, they were the first who ignored the issue of population. Mr. Rajiv Gandhi also promoted the population control programme through the Family & Health Ministry, with the help of media by using many ways to control the population.
After Mr. Rajiv Gandhi nobody is careful about this hot issue of population. Moreover some social and political societies are promoting to increase their population to increase the vote bank of particular mind set and can rule country with their ideology. Nowadays all of the political parties and bureaucrat are overlooking this key issue.
This issue is also overlapped by the few job opportunities by the multinational companies to the youth. This is the positive aspect of the globalization that many international companies are coming to India. Many BPOs and other multinational companies are offering good jobs to the Graduates, Engineers, Doctors, MBAs and other qualified youth of the country.
But the ignorance to this major issue of population can lead to the serious problems of food, cloth, residence, health, education and employment for the common man of the country. This issue can slow down the speed of growth of the country, as we want to achieve a goal to be the developed country up to 2020.
The issue of population must be discussed in the parliament. The family & Health Ministry and the Education Ministry should take the strong steps to motivate the poor, uneducated people of India to control the population. There should be wall paintings in rural area to encourage the population control by the family & Health Ministry. The Electronic media must come forward to take this issue aggressively because this is the most powerful way to promote and make understand the problem and the solution to the uneducated people and educated as well. To ignore the problem is not the solution. The population for India is still a serious truth as it was in seventies. The every person should be concern and careful for the problem of population and about its control.
