Giriraj’s ‘mass sterilisation’ remark will back fire on BJP: JD (U)

New Delhi [India], Dec. 5 : Reprimanding Union Minister Giriraj Singh over his assertion for 'mass sterilisation' in the country, the Janata Dal (United) on Monday said this move will definitely back fire on the ruling BJP that has created an environment of distrust and chaos in the country.

"It is not sure whether there would be an increase in the number of people going for sterilisation, but it is sure that this will definitely back fire on the BJP (Bade paimaane pe nasbandi hone ki yojana laagu hogi ki nhi lekin BJP ki toh nasbandi ho jayegi is yojana se)," JD (U) leader Ali Anwar told ANI.

Anwar said the plan to conduct mass sterilisation will fall flat as similar exercise undertaken by Congress leader and former prime minister Indira Gandhi's son Sanjay Gandhi did not succeed as well in the late 1970s.

"If they want to run the Parliament then the government has to bring the opposition into confidence. Everyone wants the Parliament to run but the kind of situation that is prevailing is very gloomy. The PM is speaking outside the Parliament but not inside the House. This type of environment of distrust and chaos in country is not good," he added. Giriraj Singh, who is the Minister of State for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, on Sunday said after 'notebandi' (demonetisation), there is an urgent need to make laws for 'nasbandi' (sterilisation) in the country.

Singh said all sections of the society should adopt this practice to control population in the country.
