Congress MP Pramod Tiwari on Saturday has reacted to the statement by Himachal Pradesh PWD minister Vikramaditya Singh who extended his ‘full support’ for the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) saying that nobody’s opinion matters apart from what is decided at a party-level strategy meeting. He also alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government is trying to divert people from ‘real issues’ by bringing in the matter related to UCC.
“We will have a meeting. We will discuss our strategy in the meeting. Besides this, nobody’s opinion matters. We will opine when we see it in the form of a draft…I have not seen his statement. I don’t even know in what context he said that. But it is true that the Govt is trying to bring this in to create distraction. We will take a decision that will be in the interest of 140 crore people,” he told news agency ANI.
