Naidu, while speaking at the inaugural of the two-day Collectors’ conference at his residence in Undavalli here, said that it was essential that population should grow. “I have said this in the past and I am saying it now. With birth control, the number of youths has come down while the population of the aged has increased. The trend has to be reversed,” Naidu said. In fact, the ToR for the 15th Finance Commission laid down that population of 2011 should be taken as basis for deciding central devolutions. This has come as a shock to many performing states which had taken measures to curtail population growth. Now that the new Finance Commission would allocate more funds to the most populous states, the states which had followed a code of discipline and ensure birth control would be at a loss.
