No govt job for those with more than two children in Assam


People who get married before attaining the legal marrying age or those who have more than two children will not be eligible for government jobs in Assam, the Assam government on Sunday announced a draft population policy, if the Assam government’s new population policy goes through.

The policy was, in fact, part of the ruling BJP’s vision document for Assam, which experts believe was put in place in order to control the large family sizes of Bengali-speaking Muslim immigrants.

Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on his press conference on sunday said: “This is a draft population policy. We have suggested that people having more than two children will not be eligible for any government jobs.”The policy will also seek stringent laws to prevent violence and sexual abuse of women, he added.
