Koppal: Minister for Social Welfare Kota Shrinivas Poojari on Wednesday said that the BJP is committed to implementing Uniform Civil Code in the country.
Referring to the grand foundation laying ceremony for Lord Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Kota Poojary said that BJP has fulfilled its promise of building a temple at the spot. “Now, the temple is being built there. Whatever is being said is being translated into work,” he added.
“The BJP is committed to bringing the Uniform Civil Code as the law should be equal to all citizens,” he said.
“Presently the punishment is given equally for criminal acts without any communal or religious prejudice. Likewise, there should be equal treatment to offenders with regard to civil issues,” the minister said, adding, “This is the objective behind the implementation of the Uniform Civil Code.”
“Article 44 of the constitution enumerates that it is the duty of the government to implement uniform civil laws in the country whether the state or Central government,” he said.
