Population Control: First Work for New Govt of Modi


By: Parmanad Pandey, Advocate, Supreme Court (Secretary General IPC)

  Now when it has become beyond any shadow of a doubt that Narendra Modi will again become the Prime Minister, he will have to take certain tough decisions for the sake of the country. First and foremost, the task should be to prepare a comprehensive population control policy. This can be achieved in democratic manner by  applying the policy of carrot and stick – provide penalties (like higher cost of necessities of life) for producing more than 2 children and offer incentive (like rebate and subsidies for items of daily life) for sticking to two or one child.

  When the country attained freedom, its population was nearly 36 crores but today the country is carrying the burden of 100 crores more people than what it was in 1947. As a result of it, all our progress has been offset due to the burgeoning population. If our population continue to grow with this speed, the day is not far away when we will surpass China, which has almost three times more area of land than India.

    Our entire administrative work should be the technology and artificial intelligence-driven to completely root out corruption from the administration and the judiciary, which is replete with Luddites and status-quo ists. Most of the judges, whether they are in the Supreme Court, often wax eloquent on the outdated jurisprudence and philosophy, which has no connection with today’s India. This demonstrates their intellectual pauperism.

     Agriculture must be modernized because there is no point in draining the money on the marginal and landless farmers. The subsidy and the bank loans, which are given to such farmers is hardly used for agricultural purposes but instead used for attending the social functions like marriage etc. The landless and marginal farmers do not have any income from the agricultural produce as a result of the money is drowned in the gutter, which neither helps the farmers nor the country. This money could better be used for other employment generating projects reducing the burden from the unproductive agriculture.

    The education system needs to be overhauled because of today our Institutes and Universities are churning out such lazy graduates, postgraduates, who are no better than illiterates. There are innumerable half-baked engineers, medicos and lawyers, who are good for nothing. Demonetization has certainly reduced the level of black money, but the use of cash money needs to be made minimal. Those, who say that everybody is not trained to use the cashless cards, they are insincere and disingenuous to the cause that resurgent India is going to espouse and must have their own axe to grind. The country has made giant strides in progress during the last five years of Modi and hopefully, it will be consolidated in his new regime.
