BNP Rejects Government Decision on Census 2023 Approval


During a central committee meeting led by Akhtar Mengal, the Balochistan National Party (BNP) rejected the government’s decision to approve the census 2023.

In a statement, the BNP expressed concern over the decline in the population of Balochistan according to the census, stating that it has resulted in the deprivation of basic rights for the people of the province.

Today, the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) announced that the total population of Pakistan has reached 241 million following the approval of the first digital census by the Council of Common Interests (CCI).

In its official report, the PBS revealed that Pakistan’s population has reached 241 million (24 crores, 14 lakh, 90 thousand) with a population growth rate of 2.55 percent. The report also indicated that Punjab has a population of 127 million (12 crores, 76 lakh, 80 thousand) and Sindh has a population of 55 million (5 crores, 56 lakh, 90 thousand).

It is important to note that the CCI, chaired by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, approved the results of the digital Population and Housing Census 2023. The Ministry of Planning and Development presented the digital census results to the CCI for approval.

However, the BNP’s rejection of the government’s decision raises concerns about the accuracy and fairness of the census, particularly in relation to the population of Balochistan. The party’s stance highlights the need for further examination and evaluation of the census data to ensure that the rights and interests of all citizens are protected.
