****Bangladesh is a small country. The total land area of Bangladesh is 1.47.570 square kilometres. But it is densely populated . It is the eighth largest country of the world in population. Its population is over sixteen crores. About 981 people live per square kilometre. The growth rate of population is 21-1 per thousand. It is a high rate. If our population grows at such a high rate, it will surely be double in the next twenty to twenty five years. The additional people will need many additional things. They will need food, clothes, houses, schools, hospitals etc. But Bangladesh cannot afford to meet all these additional things. So, we should take preventive steps to control the growth of our population. Otherwise all hopes and joys of our people will be nipped in the bud
