Sir: Pakistan has become recently 5th most populous country in the world after Brazil. Since last few decades Pakistan’s population has immensely grown because of illiteracy and backwardness. According to the 2017 Census, 61 percent of population is living in our rural areas and are mainly responsible for this rapid growth. No any awareness programs are being seen from the government side to reduce in the growth rate. Government should run an awareness program and should go home to home, village to village and city to city to spread the message of family planning.
