Himanta Biswa Sarma defends population control measures; sounds an alarm

Disincentives should balance incentives in the government's approach to population control, according to Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, who has cracked down on the drug trade since taking office on May 10. He said that some of the evicted people belonged to a religious minority group by chance. According to him, the Muslim population in Assam is rising at a rate of 29 percent, while Hindus are only growing at a rate of 10 percent. This will result in widespread poverty and illiteracy among Muslims. Certain steps are required to slow population increase, but we will ensure that Muslims themselves take the lead.
