Senior leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Defence Minister of the nation, Rajnath Singh yesterday (15 March) said that the party is committed to fulfilling its promise on the Uniform Civil Code just as in the case of Ram Mandir, Article 370 and Triple Talaq issue, reports Times of India.
Singh said, "Whenever we talked of Ram Mandir, people poked fun at us and said we did not have any other issue to talk about. We fulfilled our promise on Article 370 and Triple Talaq. We will do what we have said about common civil code also."
He categorically stated that the common civil code would not be against any faith or religion. “It will not be against Hindus, Muslims or Christians.” Our politics is about humans and humanity, ”he said.
Singh also added that if the party would not deliver on its promises, it will lead to a trust deficit. He emphasised, "The Ram Janmabhoomi movement brought a turnaround for the BJP because the party won people's trust. They started believing that BJP could also form the Government."
Singh was speaking at BJP's state executive committee meeting in Lucknow, where he said, "When Atalji was president of Jan Sangh, nobody could imagine that we would form a Government. We have the slogan 'chappa chappa bhajapa'. Today that slogan has become a reality."
