Asaduddin Owaisi, the leader of AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen), today took a dig at Yoga guru Ramdev who said that “third child shouldn’t be allowed to vote”
Owaisi, in a sarcastic tweet, slammed Ramdev and said Prime Minister Narendra shouldn’t “lose his right to vote just because he’s the 3rd kid.”
“There is no law preventing people from saying downright unconstitutional things, but why do Ramdev’s ideas receive undue attention?” the AIMIM chief said.
He also took a dig at Ramdev over his Yoga poses. “That he can do a thing with his stomach or move about his legs shouldn’t mean @narendramodi lose his right to vote just because he’s the 3rd kid (sic),” Owaisi wrote on Twitter.
PM Modi, the third child of Damodardas Modi and Hiraba Modi, was born on September 17, 1950 in Gujarat’s Vadnagar.
Earlier Ramdev said the government should enact a law taking away the voting rights of the third child in a family.
“India’s population should not be more than 150 crore in the next 50 years as we are not prepared or ready to bear more than that,” he claimed. “This is only possible when the government makes a law that third child would not be allowed to vote, neither contest election nor he or she enjoys any type of privileges and facilities given by the government.”
In January, Ramdev had said the voting rights of those who have more than two children should be revoked.
