We’re Planning to Bring UCC To Uttar Pradesh Even Without Opposition Backing: Keshav Prasad Maurya


LUCKNOW: The Uttar Pradesh administration is “seriously” considering implementing the planned universal civil code in the state, regardless of opposition backing, deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya announced on Saturday. His comments came a day after Union home minister Amit Shah allegedly told party workers at the BJP’s Bhopal office that “the time has come to focus on a universal code.”

Uttar Pradesh CM said, “Laws should be uniform for everyone… Our government will enforce the unified code. There is a genuine debate over this in every state-run by the BJP”

Maurya said, “If all government initiatives are executed equally across the country for all segments of society in line with the ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ concept, then a standard code must be adopted as well.”

The deputy chief minister argued that non-BJP parties were turning the other way in pursuit of appeasement politics rather than recognizing that the universal code was a long-overdue proposal. Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, has also been advocating for a unified code across the country at every chance.

Maurya said, “A uniform civil code is vital for Uttar Pradesh and the rest of the country. The BJP’s main aims have always been the repeal of Article 370, the construction of a Ram temple in Ayodhya, and the uniform code. If the opposition supports it, that is excellent; if they do not, it does not imply we will disregard it, Even though the opposition did not support the administration, Article 370 & 35A was annulled. In the very same, the consistent code will be implemented.”

The Union home minister was cited in Bhopal the previous day as stating that the uniform code will be introduced in Uttarakhand as a pilot project for which a draught was already being developed.

Shah said, “CAA, Ram Mandir, Article 370, and concerns relating to triple talaq have all been addressed. Everything will eventually come into place.”
