Dire need for family planning

M Riffat Zahid

It is a matter of great concern for every sensible citizen throughout the country that despite all measures taken and motivational campaigns for decades together, population continues to grow at a rapid pace, as a result of which the resources are falling short of the requirements for overall progress and development. As a matter of bitter fact, population growth, be it Pakistan on the whole or Punjab province, has already crossed the red line and problem is real and needs to be tackled effectively by the Punjab Government on priority basis.
Unless the whole issue of population growth is reviewed and effective measures are taken, the objectives of the initiatives being taken by the government for ushering in era of progress, development and prosperity in the rural and urban areas of the province will continue to be under great stress and eaten away by the ever increasing feeding mouths.
