TV as Birth Control in India

Is this the real reason why industrialized nations have such low birth rates? The London Times reports reports these comments from the Health and Family Welfare Minister of India, Mr. Ghulam Nabi Azad on why it's so important to bring electricity to rural villages:
“If there is electricity in every village, then people will watch TV till late at night and then fall asleep. They won’t get a chance to produce children. When there is no electricity there is nothing else to do but produce babies.”
