NEW DELHI, NOV. 19. Gujarat will bring forward a Bill in the coming session of the legislature to ban those with more than two children from contesting polls as part of population control measures, the Chief Minister, Narendra Modi, said today.
Mr. Modi said he was of the view that unless population was controlled, development was not possible. He did not specify on which elections the measure would be applied. Gujarat has already set up a Commission on the issue and it has recommended several incentives and disincentives to promote small family norm. At a press conference called as part of Gujarat Day celebrations at the India International Trade Fair here, he steered clear of all politically controversial issues, including the suspended BJP leader Uma Bharti, the second line leadership in BJP and Nasibullah Sheikh, a witness in the Best Bakery case, turning hostile such as his sister Zahira.
