"National Population Policy 2000 should be amended, revised and a new anti-natalist policy should be introduced. This can be called National National Population Policy, 2018," the member said.
Expressing concern over the rising population, he said it would lead to demographic catastrophe in the next 50 years. "In this situation, I wish to say before you that a National Population Policy 2018 should be made. It should be a two-child policy," he said.
He also said if a man has more than two children, then the third child should be deprived of subsidies and government job and should also not fight elections. He also suggested creation of a separate ministry to be named as "Ministry of Population Regulation".
Observing that it would be disastrous if there is no population stabilisation, he claimed a "majority of the people in the country think that there should be concrete and meaningful policy for population control".
Participating in the debate on the private resolution, another BJP member, Nishikant Dubey, said that women should be made aware of the dangers of population explosion "or else there could be a chance that their wards could turn out to be notorious criminals ... due to lack of attention and basic amenities".
He also advocated a special policy to discourage people from having more than two children. Ravindra Kumar Ray (also BJP) advocated a policy under which government benefits and subsidies can be stopped for those with more than two kids.
