UP govt against forcible implementation of family planning
Lucknow: The Samajwadi Party-led Akhilesh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday said it was against forcible implementation of family planning measures in the state.
Replying to supplementaries on a question by Suresh Kumar Khanna (BJP) in the Vidhan Sabha, Parliamentary Affairs minister Azam Khan said the China model could not be followed in a democratic set up.
Measures like creating awareness and motivating people were showing results in the state, he said.
Khan said those who implemented the measures during the emergency had not returned to power in the state.
To this, Pramod Tiwari (Cong) reminded the minister that the Congress had formed its government twice in 1980 and 1985 in the state.
He said his party was also not in favour of forcible implementation of family planning measures.
