Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya told the Rajya Sabha on Friday that instead of using 'force (jabran),' the government had successfully used awareness and health campaigns to accomplish population control. He was speaking in opposition to BJP MP Rakesh Sinha's private member's bill, which sought to impose a two-child rule with penal provisions for violations. The bill was introduced in July 2019.
