New Delhi: Responding to the Law Commission of India’s questionnaire on the contentious Uniform Civil Code, most Opposition parties have dubbed the move to refer the matter to it as part of the BJP government’s “political agenda”, with some of them even questioning the timing of it ahead of Uttar Pradesh polls.

The Congress, BSP and TMC are learnt to have refrained from saying as to whether they support a common civil code or not. However, they dubbed the decision of the government to refer the matter to the law panel as trying to further its political interests, sources from the parties said.

 

Responding to the law panel’s request to answer the questionnaire, BSP said the party is attaching a press statement issued by Mayawati on October 25 in Lucknow.

Asaduddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) is learnt to have opposed a common code and has supported its stand through certain court orders.

The NCP is learnt to have opposed the practice of “instant triple talaq” but has, by and large, supported separate personal laws.
