Beget more kids: Chandrababu Naidu

CM expressed his changed mindset about family planning.

Vijayawada: AP CM Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday called up on the people of the state to beget more number of children. Participating in a sports seminar here, CM expressed his changed mindset about family planning while comparing the global and AP scenarios. Recalling his previous stint as CM, when AP government had promoted one child policy, the CM said that the changed mindset came after analysing various facts such as global growth rate and problems from downfall in population.

“The state’s population is witnessing a down fall. It is not good for any progressive country. Now China and Japan are facing problem from population downfall. Previously, China and Japan followed family planning due to high population. But now majority of their people are old and there is huge shortfall in the number of youngsters. They have realised the problem and are encouraging more child births, he said. Mr Naidu said that the government would take steps to provide physical education to every child in primary schools.

The government’s aim is not only to develop the state but also get top position in the Happiness Index, he said adding that the government would develop sports infrastructure with international standards in AP’s new capital Amaravati and other major cities like Tirupathi, Vizag and Vijayawada.
