Preparations are underway to implement Uniform Civil Code law in states like Uttarakhand and Gujarat. Meanwhile, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has also said that if everything goes well, he will implement it in his state also. However, some changes will be made in it. He said on Friday that his government is closely monitoring the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) Bill prepared by the Uttarakhand government. He said that we are trying to see whether it can be fully implemented in the north-eastern state or not.
Let us tell you that the five-member committee constituted by the Dhami government has submitted its draft report to Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami on Friday. CM Sarma’s reaction came just two hours after this. Sarma said, “We will keep a close eye on whatever work is being done regarding UCC in Uttarakhand. If the Uttarakhand government presents this bill in the state assembly on February 5, then we will see whether it can be fully implemented in Assam as well or not. Our assembly session will start from February 12, so we still have some time.”
CM Sarma informed that his government is preparing an act to ban polygamy in Assam. Earlier this month, he had said that his government would implement the UCC but would keep the tribal population out of its purview. He had said, “Uttarakhand and Gujarat will bring UCC first and Assam will make some new changes in those bills and implement them in the state.”
He said, “I am waiting to see the UCC Bill of Uttarakhand. Once it is completed, we will bring the same law in Assam also. Since we are working against child marriage and polygamy, there will be some There will be changes. Tribal community will be given exemption in Assam.
Sarma also said that if public consultation on the UCC Bill can be held in 2-3 months, it will be introduced in the Assam Assembly soon. He had said that everything would depend on the Uttarakhand and Gujarat bills, but Assam would be the third state to implement UCC.
