Need to focus on unemployment and economy – Owaisi
On the other hand, All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi has said that BJP leaders are talking of bringing a Uniform Civil Code in the country, which is not needed right now. Instead, Owaisi said that special attention should be paid to the development of the economy and employment generation. Owaisi, Lok Sabha MP from Hyderabad, was talking to reporters after an Iftar party organized by AIMIM MP from Aurangabad, Imtiaz Jalil, on Saturday. He said that Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP leaders are saying that they will bring a Uniform Civil Code, but this is not the need of the country today. The economy has gone down, unemployment is rising which needs attention.
Last month, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami had said that a Uniform Civil Code would soon be implemented in the state. He said that we had promised to implement Uniform Civil Code if re-elected. In the first meeting of our cabinet, we approved the proposal to set up a committee of experts to draft a Uniform Civil Code. It will be implemented in the state soon. I request other states also to implement this.
