Baba Ramdev’s Idea

Addressing a press conference in Haridwar on Sunday, Yoga guru Ramdev said that country’s population should not be allowed to exceed beyond 150 crores and this is only possible if the government takes away voting rights from the third-born in a family.


“India’s population should not be more than 150 crores in the next 50 years as we are not prepared or ready to bear more than that. This is only possible when the government makes a law that third child would not be allowed to vote, neither contest elections nor he/she enjoys any type of privileges and facilities given by the government,” Ramdev baba said.

“Then people will not give birth to more children, no matter which religion they belong to,” he added.

Ban Cow-slaughter

Baba Ramdev also demanded a full ban on cow-slaughter saying it was the only way to reduce the conflict between cow smugglers and vigilantes from Hindutva outfits.

“There should be a complete ban on cow slaughter and it is the only way out to end the conflict that we see between cow smugglers and ‘gau rakshak’. For those who want to eat meat, there are several other types of meat which they can eat,” he said.


Liquor Ban

Further, he also demanded a ban over liquor supply in India, he said: “In Islamic countries, liquor is banned. If in Islamic countries it can be banned then why not in India? This is the land of sages. There should be a complete ban on liquor in India.”
