Andhra Pradesh chief N Chandrababu Naidu has asked the people of the state to beget more children as he admitted to changing his mindset about family planning.
During his previous stint as CM, the AP government had promoted the one child policy.
"The stateās population is witnessing a down fall. It is not good for any progressive country. Now China and Japan are facing problem from population downfall. Previously, China and Japan followed family planning due to high population. But now, majority of their people are old and there is huge shortfall in the number of youngsters. They have realised the problem and are encouraging more child births," Deccan Chronicle quoted him as saying.
