Madhya Pradesh CM said it will establish a committee to executethe uniform civil code

Shivraj Singh Chouhan, the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, announced on Thursday that
a committee would be established to implement the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) in the State,
stepping into the footsteps of his Bharatiya Janata Party counterparts in a number of other
states. Speaking at a Panchayat (Extension to Scheduled Areas) Act awareness event in the
Barwani district, Mr. Chouhan added that he supported the implementation of the UCC and
that each citizen should only be permitted one marriage.
The uniform civil code (UCC) is something that the state “must endeavour to provide for its
citizens throughout the territory of India,” according to Article 44 of the DPSPs in the
Constitution. The makers of the Constitution intended the UCC to be a consistent body of
laws that would replace the distinct personal laws of each religion with regard to issues like
marriage, divorce, adoption, and inheritance, even if there isn’t yet a draught or model
document for it.
Several BJP leaders have brought up the matter of UCC implementation during the past
month, particularly during the election campaigns in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh. A
committee of experts has already been assembled in the BJP-governed states of Gujarat and
Uttarakhand to examine the implementation roadmap. Basavraj Bommai, the chief minister
of Karnataka, recently stated that his administration is “seriously considering” putting the
UCC into effect. Himanta Biswa Sarma, the chief minister of Assam, had also stated last
week during an election rally that a law related to the UCC was needed.
