Angry Ramdev wants to snatch voting rights, govt jobs of those who have more than 2 kids

New Delhi, News24 Bureau, Jan 24: Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev has come with a unique suggestion: He wants the government to snatch voting rights and govt jobs of those who have more than two kids.

Ramdev said this at an event in Aligarh: "To control population of the country, voting rights, jobs and treatment facilities should be taken away from people who give birth to more than two kids and whether they are Hindus or Muslims. Then only the population will be controlled." He was showing concern about the rising population of India as a reason for the need of such actions. While inaugurating Patanjali garment in Aligarh, Ramdev, a bachelor himself told media that such people should not be allowed to contest elections, denied admissions in government schools, do not seek treatment in a government hospital and not allowed to take government jobs.  This was not the first time when that Ramdev had made such statement.In November last year, he said that people like him, who do not get married, should be accorded special honours."In this country, people like me, who never get married, should receive a special honour. Those who get married and produce more than two children should be denied voting rights," Ramdev said at an event.
