AAP’s view on UCC

Also Read

The Aam Aadmi Party has always adopted a steady approach of being in limelight to cement position as a potent opposition in Indian politics at the national level. The party has again become successful in garnering views of the public from its current statement on the hotly debated issue of Uniform Civil Code. But still, the idea remains in a penumbral area for the public from the lens of AAP on UCC. The electorate of AAP is keen to know the stand of the party but the same remains unresolved even after several attempts have been made by the aliens to disclose its stance on UCC clearly.

Just before the Gujarat polls, Arvind Kejriwal, the key leader of Aam Aadmi Party, mocked BJP for using UCC as a tool for its political games in winning elections. Article 44 of the Indian Constitution was brought up by Arvind Kejriwal, who asked the government to put the dead letter into practice. The party passively supported the idea of implementing UCC but was outspoken enough to underline the conditions of such half-hearted support. Mr. Kejriwal in his dialogue with the press mentioned that the UCC should be properly implemented with the consensus from all the stakeholders of different groups who have an interest in the UCC policy.

The same energy got reciprocated in Delhi last week where Sandeep Pathak, the National General Secy. of AAP and its Punjab Co-incharge gave a statement in press about the party’s stance on UCC. The party believes in implementation of UCC “in principle” but demands an extensive consultation on the topic which is consensus based.

On the other hand, AAP’s politics on UCC gets a challenge from the CM of Punjab, Mr. Bhagwant Mann who quoted the secular nature of Aam Aadmi Party’s principles unlike BJP’s. Mann’s assertion was a little away from the party line as the electorate’s demograph has changed. Sikhs being a minority does not really favor UCC which is precisely the reason behind Mann’s statement.

Ahead of the 2024 polls, AAP has swiftly managed to be in both the boats. The party is waiting for the appropriate and suitable political atmosphere to reveal its thoughts on UCC ahead of polls and the opposition alliance. One of the reasons for this, which could be inferred from the recent activities in the AAP’s camp, could be that AAP is looking to widen its domain of vote bank on national level. However, the time is near for AAP to decide the future of UCC in India from its perspective.
