Union Law Minister hopeful about UCC implementation


Share post:


KOLKATA, June 16: Union Law and Justice Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal on Sunday expressed hope about implementation of the Uniform Civil Code, contending that some states have started to bring it into force.
Meghwal made the remark while speaking at the sidelines of a conference on ‘India’s Progressive Path in the Administration of Criminal Justice System’ here.
“In BJP manifesto, we have mentioned about the UCC. There are states like Goa and Uttarakhand that have started implementing them.”
“The coalition which has been formed in the Centre is a very strong government and there is nothing to worry about,” Meghwal said here on Sunday.
Last week, soon after Meghwal, an MP from the Bikaner constituency, said that the UCC is still on the BJP’s agenda, the JDU, said that any such move must come through consensus.
JD(U) leader KC Tyagi said that while the party is not against UCC, it wants that such a move should come through a consensus.
The Union Law minister criticised the incidents of alleged post-poll violence in West Bengal and said that the central government is alert about them.
He said that such post-poll violence is not healthy for a democratic country like India.
The BJP on Saturday formed a four-member committee to look into the alleged political violence in West Bengal, as the party accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of remaining a mute spectator. (PTI)
