Union minister of State for Food Processing Industries Prahlad Singh Patel on Tuesday, 31 May, announced that government will soon be coming up with a law to control population in the country, news agency PTI reported.

The minister was attending a ‘Garib Kalyan Sammelan’ event at Baronda's ICAR-National Institute of Biotic Stress Management in Raipur.

“It will be brought soon, don’t worry. When such strong and big decisions have been taken, then others will be taken too," Patel told reporters on Tuesday.

"It is coming soon," Patel assured.


The minister took to Twitter on Tuesday to celebrate eight years of Modi government, saying that on the occasion, he had the privilege of attending Garib Kalyan Sammelan in Raipur.

"Thanks to everyone who was present including Premprakashji, Devji Bhai, District President Babi Bais," he wrote.

'Problem is Management': Patel Criticised Congress

The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) leader also criticised the Chhattisgarh government. Taking a dig at the ruling Congress, he said the party has failed in hitting certain targets set by the Centre under the PM Awas scheme.

"The problem is management," he explained.

As per PTI,

Patel said, “The state government has been able to achieve only 23 percent work under Jal Jeevan Mission while the national average of target achievement under it is 50 percent."

There is no issue with water sources in Chhattisgarh, the Union minister continued, but Congress has failed at management.
