The first Indian female wrestler to have qualified for Olympics, Geeta was present at the event, along with her husband and fellow wrestler Pawan Kumar.
The event was organised by Taxpayers Association of Bharat (TAXAB), a platform for citizen-driven movement for population stabilisation, which today said it will appeal to the Centre to bring about a “two-child norm in the country”.
London Olympics bronze medal winning wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt, who also attended the programme, acknowledged that over population was the biggest problem bedevilling the country and people must join hands to address the issue.
“We must come together in this campaign and impress upon the government to come with a law on population control. Only with controlled population, the youth of the coming generation will be strong and prosperous,” Dutt said.
