Lucknow, January 18: Mohan Bhagwat, Rashtriya Swaymsevak Sangh (RSS) chief on Friday said that next key item on the agenda of his organisation is a law restricting number of children born per couple. Bhagwat, who is a four-day visit to Uttar Pradesh, told a gathering in Moradabad that the next item of RSS agenda is that a couple should have only two kids. According to a report by Amar Ujala, saying that the two-child law was 'an opinion' of his organisation and the government had to decide on it.
Taking a jibe at Bhagwat, NCP leader Nawab Malik said that the RSS Chief isn't really aware that Maharashtra and several other states already have several child laws. "Mohan Bhagwat ji wants a two child law. He maybe doesn't know that Maharashtra already has several laws on this and many other states also. Still if he wants to forcefully do vasectomies then let Modiji make such a law.We saw in past what happened with this". Malik said.
