Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi (PM Narendra Modi) has put the issue of Uniform Civil Code i.e. UCC in front of the country. Continuous feedback is coming out on this. Confusion is visible not only among the opposition parties but also among the allies of the BJP regarding the matter. Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma has told it against the idea of India. The National People’s Party (NPP) supremo spoke to the media regarding the matter and said that diversity is India’s strength and his party feels that the UCC in its current form will go against the idea.
Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said that the Northeast has got a unique culture and society. This society wants to remain like this. However, the NPP chief said that knowing something about the ground reality of the UCC draft, it was too early to reach any decision. Noting that Meghalaya has a matriarchal society and the Northeast has diverse cultures, he insisted that these cannot be changed.
He said the NPP feels that the UCC will go against the idea of India being a diverse nation, in which diversity is our strength and identity. Here, Goa CM Pramod Sawant has said that Uniform Civil Code is important for women empowerment and gender quality. Many parties are doing politics on UCC. It means that they do not want women empowerment and sexual quality. UCC is not based on caste and religion. It should be implemented in the country soon.
