UCC, ‘One Country One Election’ to be implemented in next tenure: Union Home Minister Amit Shah

Union Home Minister Amit Shah has said that if the BJP comes back to power, the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) and ‘One Country One Election’ will be implemented for the entire country.

In an interview with PTI, Amit Shah emphasized that the BJP is not involved in religion-based campaigning. However, he asserted that he was against giving reservations to Muslims.

He also said that if the abrogation of Article 370 and implementation of the Uniform Civil Code are considered religious issues, the BJP has made and will continue to do so.

Regarding the allegation that the Election Commission no longer provides correct data, Amit Shah said, “Similar protocols have been used in previous elections including Telangana, West Bengal, and Himachal Pradesh where the BJP lost. He argued that the opposition’s concerns are baseless.

Usually at the end of the election day, the Election Commission gives the total number of votes and percentage details. After that, it will inform the final calculation in a couple of days. But this time the Election Commission has taken 11 days to provide the final polling data in the first two phases. That too revealed a mere percentage calculation.

A difference of 4% is common between the polling data on the day of the election and the final polling data. But in this Lok Sabha election, a difference of about 6-9 percent has been found in the data. The opposition and social activists have questioned this.
