Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh): MP from Unnao Sakshi Maharaj on Saturday raised a dust demanding to abolish minority status for Muslims.
"There is more Muslim population in India than Pakistan, therefore the minority status of the Muslims should be abolished with immediate effect. Muslims should now consider themselves to be the younger siblings of the Hindus and live with them in the country," addressing a function, Bharatiya Janata Party MP said.
As for the rising population of the country, Sakshi said, "Soon a bill would be tabled in Parliament to check the increasing population. Those who will have more than two children, will be deprived from contesting elections."
The BJP MP attacked the opposition parties on the farmers' ongoing protest against farm laws, and said, "The government is ready to talk about the farm laws."
He lashed out at the Congress, saying that "like the Ram temple, the Congress and other political parties should appeal in the Supreme Court on the agricultural bill. Rather, they are firing guns from the shoulders of innocent farmers' shoulders".
