NCP downplayed Shiv Sena's Uttar Pradesh unit of offering cash to Hindu families having ten children and asked the media not to give any undue importance to it.
"This is ridiculous which is trying to imbalance the population ratio and I think that such endeavour on the part of certain people deserves only to be ignored and this is not going to have any impact. And I am sure the media also will not unduly blow it," Memon told.
According to reports, the Uttar Pradesh unit of Shiv Sena has come up with an idea by offering Rs 21,000 in cash to each Hindu family having 10 or more children as a measure to tackle the growing influence of other communities.
Earlier, Congress blamed NCP of warming up to the BJP even before the May 2014 Lok Sabha polls, indicating that many of its leaders were out to save their skins from any potential investigations into wrongdoings.
