New Delhi: “BJP will implement the Uniform Civil Code,” Union home minister Amit Shah said in an exclusive conversation with Network18 Group Editor-in-Chief Rahul Joshi at News18 India’s ‘Gujarat Adhiveshan’ event on Monday.

“Congress should tell clearly if they are in support of the Uniform Civil Code or not, From 1950, it is in our manifesto that we will bring Uniform Civil Code. In any secular nation, there should be equal laws for the citizens of all religions. This is the promise of our manifesto and we will fulfill it,” he said.

On a question on the role of the Aam Aadmi Party, Shah said the people of Gujarat have never accepted the concept of a third party in the state. It is a habit of Gujaratis that they listen to everyone that has to say. And if people get influenced by these sayings, then I have nothing to say, the outcome will speak on its own.”
