Introduction Of Private Members Bill On UCC Brought Controversy Ahead Of 2024 Elections

Hyderabad, Dec 17 (Maxim News): The introduction of a private Members Bill on the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) in the Rajya Sabha by the BJP MP and several BJP ruled states announcing their intention to implement the UCC have brought the controversial issue to the Centrestage of politics.

It may be recalled that UCC has been one of the three key issues on the BJP’s agenda since its inception. After its success in building the Ram Temple at Ayodhya and scrapping Article 370, the BJP now has its eyes set on the third goal.

Ahead of 2024, Private member’s UCc Bill poses a dilemma for opposition, whether the country will ultimately agree to a UCC given the vast diversity of religious, ethnic, regional and linguistic groups across the states and their practices is debatable but political observers say the BJP clearly senses the huge electoral benefits it can derive from the highly emotive issue.

with elections in several states due next year 2023 including Telangana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh etc followed by general elections for Parliament in 2024. The BJP is likely to go all out to capitalise on the polarising issue. Uttarakhand was the first state to set up a panel to explore the possibility of a UCC in the state, Madhya Pradesh too announced that a committee would be constituted to implement the UCC in the state. The BJP had made the UCC a part of its manifesto in Himachal Pradesh but the party failed to win. In Gujarat, where the BJP retained power with a record majority, the government is likely to initiate steps towards the UCC as promised a few months ago. (Maxim news)
