Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that the population explosion will have to be controlled to protect the natural resources as the rising population has resulted in creating socio-economic problems. In his message, the Chief Minister said that World Population Day reminds us to keep the population ratio according to the available resources as arranging additional resources for the increased population has become a problem everywhere. It is imperative to control the unbridled population explosion so that qualitative life could be ensured for every citizen. We have to arrange educational, healthcare and employment opportunities for every citizen but there is a need to deeply think about the growing population. In this regard, government is following the policy of managing the population pressure in big cities through a policy of composite development of the province, the Chief Minister concluded.
