New Delhi: Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan Friday accused the Sangh Parivar for rekindling the debates on Uniform Civil Code for electoral benefits.
In a tweet post, the Chief Minister said, “Triggering debates around Uniform Civil Code is an electoral ploy by Sangh Parivar to press their majoritarian agenda for deepening communal divide.”
The Kerala Cheif Minister further pressed for the need to take “reforms” against it. In his tweet, he continued, “Let’s oppose any attempts to undermine India’s pluralism and support reforms through democratic discussions within communities,” tweets Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan on UCC.”
However, the discussion over the Uniform Civil Code were re-emerged after a speech made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal where he asked – “how will the country be able to function with such a dual system?”
“You tell me, in a home, how can there be one law for one member and another law for another member? Will that home be able to function? Then how will the country be able to function with such a dual system? We have to remember that even in India’s Constitution, there is a mention of equal rights for all,” he said.
“These people (opposition) level allegations against us but the reality is that they chant Musalman, Musalman. Had they really been (working) in the interests of Muslims, then Muslim families would not have been lagging in education and jobs,” he added.
