BJP, after showing reluctance in beginning for caste census, finally agreed to the proposal and participated in all party meeting convened to finalise modalities for caste census on June 1. But two days after the all party meeting, Forest and Climate Change Minister Neeraj Singh Bablu from BJP quota demanded framing of population control law in Bihar to check unbridled growth of population particularly one community, a reference for Muslims.

Neeraj said that decks had now been cleared for caste census in Bihar using resources of the state government. 

Proper care should also be taken during caste census that a large number of Bangladeshi infiltrators settled in the Seemanchal region of Bihar could also be counted, he added.

The Minister pointed out that whether legal or illegal, Bangladeshis and Rohingyas should be counted in the Seemanchal region of Bihar.

Legal action should be taken against those found settled illegally in Bihar, he stressed. They should not be allowed to take advantage of caste census to claim citizenship of India, he cautioned.

Neeraj while demanding for population control law in Bihar, said it was necessary to check unbridled growth of population. 

In an oblique reference to Muslim community, he said that population growth of a particular section in the society had been uncontrolled.
