Sakshi Maharaj controversial statement: EC seeks report
BJP leader and MP from Unnao Sakshi Maharaj


Meerut: Election Commission has sought a report on the controversial statement of a senior BJP leader and MP from Unnao Sakshi Maharaj here.
During a religious function here yesterday, Maharaj says, "its not Hindus who are responsible for rising population, but those who are permitted to have four wife's and 40 children.
" Addressing a sant samagan event, BJP MP said, "Jansankhya badhane ke liye hindu zimmedar nahi hain.
Jansankhya per tab hee niyantran kiya jaa sakega, jab is per koi sakht kanoon banega (Hindus are not responsible for the population boom and it can only be controlled if strict laws are introduced in the system).
" His statement is being looked at as a clear violation of recent Supreme Court order on keeping religion off the table during campaigning for polls.
