The UP government is “seriously” contemplating bringing the proposed uniform civil code into force in the state, whether the opposition supports it or not, deputy CM Keshav Prasad Maurya declared on Saturday. His remark came within a day of Union home minister Amit Shah reportedly telling party functionaries at the BJP office in MP’s Bhopal that “it is time to focus on a uniform code”.
