THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Kerala’s Public Works Minister, Mohammed Riyas, announced that the Communist Party of India (Marxist) or CPI (M) would express solidarity with those organizing seminars against the Uniform Civil Code (UCC).
He emphasized that the decision to oppose the UCC was not made hastily and that its impact would extend beyond Malappuram, affecting the entire nation. Expressing concern over the implementation of the UCC, Riyas stressed the importance of taking this matter seriously nationwide.
In order to make awareness on the negative aspects UCC, seminars will be held across the country today, and the Muslim League has been invited to participate. However, internal conflicts within the League have emerged, and the Congress party is being held responsible for these divisions.
The Minister criticized the Congress for lacking a clear stance on the UCC and having conflicting opinions on various issues, similar to the recent opinions over relocating the state capital from Thiruvananthapuram.
Riyas highlighted that some Congress leaders have supported the UCC in certain states, further exposing the party’s inconsistent approach. He accused Congress leaders in Kerala of spreading propaganda to dissuade people from attending CPI (M)’s seminar, asserting that they are acting as propagandists for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
