Pune: Now troubled by the "exploding" population statistics, the Maharashtra Governor Mohammad Fazal is running successful vasectomy camps at his official residence.
Fazal began by offering Rs 3,000 each from his own kitty to Raj Bhavan employees who opted for vasectomy. Twenty-one came forward. then he inspired his own nephew to opt for the procedure. That too accomplished, he roped in the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to organise vasectomy camps at the Population Control Cell at Raj Bhavan.In just two months (Nov-Dec 2003), says Raj Bhavan PROU.R. Kashikar, 800 men have been vasectomised at these camps, receiving Rs 500 each as reward.
