India is confronted with the unruly populatioan, say population growth, and there is hardly any one to bother the least including political heavy weights and the reason is once bitten twice shy. During Emergency this was top agenda of Sanjai Gandhi and it cost Indira Gandhi, the then Prime Minister of the country, her government. It was virtually once bitten twice shy and the till then a great furore got silenced. None was bold enough to take cudgels against the public and the issue got fully gorbaged. Infact none had guts to bell the cat since then. There are murmers that some selected individuals are there who tried to raise their voice but they were silenced by the power blocks. True, moves are there on developmental programmes and progress of the country but gains on that count only get submerged leaving nothing for the people.The need of the hour is to enable a plug that is capable of arresting population growth failing which all pro development and reconstruction activities would have to get doomed.
