Uniform Civil Code opposed by state unit of National People's party

Itanagar: The Arunachal unit of the National People’s Party (NPP) has announced its opposition to the immediate implementation of the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) in the northeastern state.

Addressing the media, National People’s party (NPP) State General Secretary Paknga Bage said that the party has unanimously decided to oppose the immediate implementation of UCC in the state.
“There are two types of law in the Indian Constitution. Criminal law under the IPC, operative under the CrPC, is one type of law, and the other is personal law, such as the Hindu Marriage Act of 1955, the Muslim Personal Law of 1937, the Christian Marriage Act of 1872, and customary laws,” Bage said, adding that “NPP Arunachal has unanimously decided to frame the customary laws of the state along with tribal practices with necessary modifications.”
The General Secretary also said that in the new pension scheme, the employees are not covered under family pension as it was under the old pension scheme in case of death or retirement of an employee.
Among others present during the interaction with the media were the party’s State Legal Secretary Pura Khungkhong, General Secretary (Political Affairs) Tapi Sorang and State Secretary Kokar R.
