Kohima: Nagaland minister Temjen Imna Along Monday asked people to stay single and join the “singles movement” to be “sensible” on population growth.


The message of the minister, a 42-year-old bachelor himself, was uploaded in his Twitter handle on the occasion of World Population Day.

Along, who is the president of Nagaland BJP and a first time member of the state Assembly, currently holds the portfolio of higher education and tribal affairs.

On the occasion of #WorldPopulationDay, let us be sensible towards the issues of population growth and inculcate informed choices on child bearing. Or #StaySingle like me and together we can contribute towards a sustainable future. Come join the singles movement today, he tweeted.

However, efforts through calls and WhatsApp message to him to know if he has initiated the “singles movement” was in vain.
