One Child Policy for India: Address Population Explosion

When we are hotly contesting citizenship, immigration, infiltration etc why not address the elephant in the room? Today clearly we have a situation where resources (or mobilisation of resources) are falling short of meeting the needs of an over growing and out of control population. If we cannot provide good life to our future generations then we do not have any right to bring them into this world. So at the risk of irking people's sentiments why don't we implement one child policy ? At least for two or three decades, till the time we completely eliminate poverty and provide good life to existing population. Those who want a second child can go for adoption wherever possible.
In terms of human development index and quality of living, we have a long way to go. It is possible to provide good quality of living only when population is under control.
