(sic),” Owaisi tweeted. 

In his tweet where he tagged Modi, the Hyderabad MP also said,”@PMOIndia is clueless about what how to utilise this advantage, so he’s coming up with discarded & intrusive ideas of governance that shirk his own responsibility.”

During his Independence Day address, the prime minister had said that there was a need to address the issue of population explosion. “The issue of ever-rising population is a matter of concern. If population is educated and healthy, the country too will be healthy.”
