Patna, 25th April 2022: The Pushkar Singh Dhami government of Uttarakhand has prepared the draft of the Common Civil Code. It will soon be implemented in the state. The Uttar Pradesh (UP) government is also considering implementing it.

In such a situation, there is a demand to implement the Common Civil Code in Bihar as well. JDU has made its stand clear regarding this. Upendra Kushwaha, the Legislative Councilor cum President of the party’s Parliamentary Party, said that there is no need for Uniform Civil Code in Bihar.

Kushwaha said that Uniform Civil Code will not apply in Bihar. People of different religions live in the country. The system that is in place now is fine. In an informal conversation with reporters on Sunday, the JDU leader said that there is an NDA government in Bihar. Everyone knows that JDU’s opinion is different from BJP’s on many issues. As long as Nitish Kumar is the Chief Minister of Bihar, the question of implementing the Common Civil Code in the state does not arise.

On the question of what is the problem with the Common Civil Code, the JDU leader said that what is the need of it.

Some time ago, Union Minister and BJP MP from Begusarai Giriraj Singh had talked about implementing Uniform Civil Code in Bihar. He said that such a law is needed keeping in mind the fact that our population density is already higher than we can handle. He had said that this is not a political issue but a social issue.
