‘A welcome step, women in this country deserve equality’: MoS Meenakshi Lekhi on UCC – World News Network

New Delhi [India], July 3 (ANI): Union Minister of State Meenakshi Lekhi on Monday said ‘it’s a welcome step’ that the government plans to implement the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) and added that the women in this country deserve equality.
“It’s a welcome step and I am glad that it has been done when our government is there…these are subjects which one has grown up with and for ages one has desired this…women of this country do deserve equality and women of this country do deserve justice, irrespective of which religion they come from…”, MoS Meenakshi Lekhi said.
The meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Committee for Law and Justice began on Monday in the Parliament to discuss the issue of the Uniform Civil Code.
Earlier, in an exclusive interview with ANI, Union Minister of Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal said that “it is the need of the hour that a law should be made by uniting and including all the people of the country and the Supreme Court has also endorsed many of its verdicts”.
The union minister further said that the BJP would get cross-party support for the UCC.
“We have a full majority in Rajya Sabha and I think there are many leaders from other parties who want that the country should unite. I think many parties will support BJP on Uniform Civil Code. We will get cross-party support for this,” the minister said.
Earlier on Saturday, Rajya Sabha MP Kapil Sibal said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi should inform the country of what the proposal is for a UCC.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s strong endorsement of the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) brought it back to the spotlight.PM Modi said that the country cannot run on two laws and that Uniform Civil Code was part of the Constitution.
“Today people are being instigated in the name of UCC. How can the country run on two (laws)? The Constitution also talks of equal rights…Supreme Court has also asked to implement UCC. These (Opposition) people are playing vote bank politics,” PM Modi had said. (ANI)
