As per the new population control policy to eradicate poverty and illiteracy among minority people, a consensus has been reached with the indigenous Muslims of Assam on the state government’s proposed new population control initiative. The meeting is believed to be one of the biggest outreach programs for the minority communities of the state.
Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma was scheduled to meet around 150 intellectuals from the community and was set to hold discussions on the development of the minorities and the implementation of the population control policy. His next attempt will be to conduct a similar accord with Bengali-speaking members of the religious community, he said.
“If we have to be among the top five states in the country, we have to manage our population explosion…Next, I’m meeting migrant Muslims (Bengali-speaking Muslims of lower and central Assam) to deliberate on this”, Mr. Sarma said after the meeting
