India: Awareness on population control needed

Enviroment

Dakshina Kannada zilla panchayat, district administration, district health and family welfare and Government Wenlock Hospital organized World Population Day at the Regional Advanced Paediatric Care Centre here on Tuesday.
Delivering the inaugural address, deputy commissioner N S Channappa Gowda said awareness should be created among people in villages to control the population growth. While the state has 17% of the nation’s population, it has been ranked eight in the nation. Though a diminishing trend in population was seen in Dakshina Kannada in the census 2011, the district stands in the second place after Bangalore in terms density of population, he said.

Mangalore MLA U T Khader, district health and family welfare officer O R Srirangappa and reproduction and child health officer M Rukmini were guests.

    Question: How can India NOT be aware they have a population problem…really?
