Pointing out at China's one family one child policy, Bhagwat said, "While we are trying to control the population, we should see what happened in China. That country went for the one-child policy and now it is getting older."
Bhagawat said with 57 crore youth population in India, it will remain a young nation for the next 30 years. "However, what will happen to India after 50 years? Will we have enough food to feed the population," he added.
Bhagwat also stressed on people starting their own businesses and not relying solely on government jobs.
"All government jobs put together, only 30 percent population will be covered. The rest of the population will have to start their own businesses to create more employment," he said.
