Bengaluru: Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said that his government is seriously considering the implementation of the uniform civil code in the State to ensure equality.

Speaking to his party leaders on Friday November 25, he emphasised that the Constitution’s preamble mentions equality and fraternity.

He reaffirmed his commitment to implementing the UCC into action by saying, “We have been talking about the uniform civil code since Deendayal Upadhyay’s time. There is a lot of serious thought happening in this nation at both the national and State levels. There is also an intention to implement it when the right time comes,” he said.

Bommai said, “I would like to say very clearly that we not only expound things we believe in that will bring about people’s welfare and equality but also would take all strong measures to implement it.”

“Many criticised the anti-conversion statute that the BJP government of Karnataka established, but now the Supreme Court has issued a ruling declaring that forced conversion is a crime,” he added.
