Bengaluru: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National General Secretary C T Ravi on Tuesday pitched the idea to bring in a new population policy in Karnataka, on the lines of party ruled Assam and Uttar Pradesh, to curb growing population amid limited natural resources.

“It is high time Karnataka brings in a new population policy on the lines of Assam and Uttar Pradesh to control its growing population,” Ravi, who is also a ruling BJP MLA from Chikkamagaluru said in a post on Twitter.

“With the limited natural resources available, it will be difficult to meet the needs of every citizen if there is a population explosion,” he said.
