Baba RamdevWATCH: Baba Ramdev says those with more than 2 kids should not be given voting right

Yoga guru Ramdev on Sunday said that there should be a special provision to honour unmarried people like him in the country. Speaking at an event, Ramdev said that those who produce more than two kids, should not be allowed to participate in elections.

“Is desh mein jo hamari tarah se vivah na kare unka vishesh samman hona chahiye, aur vivah kare, to 2 se jyada santaan paida kare to uski voting right nahi honi chahiye (In this country, those, who, like me, do not marry, should be honoured, and those who marry and have more than two children; their voting rights should be taken away),” he said.

“It’s tough. Marriage is not an easy thing, many are yet to get married, and several are done with it. And if you have a child, then you will have to bear with them for the entire life,” he said.

“You don’t require wife and kids to become happy. I am always smiling,” the yoga guru had added.
