Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Hindus in no way will benefit from UCC, says West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee

Trinamool Congress leader and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, on April 29, criticised the Bhartiya Janta Party for using the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) as a political ploy ahead of the elections, asserting that Hindus will not benefit from it. Speaking at an electoral rally in the minority-dominated Jangipur constituency in Murshidabad district, Mamata accused the BJP of resorting to divisive tactics after it anticipated defeat in the initial phases of polling. Jangipur is to go for polls in third phase on May 7.

“Whenever there are elections, they use one issue or the other to flare up communal tensions. This time they are talking about the UCC and are propagating that it is against a particular community. But this UCC is nothing but political rhetoric and Hindus in no way will benefit from it,” she said. Banerjee highlighted that sentiment against the BJP is growing across the nation and is evident after the first two phases of voting.
