‘Wont benefit Hindus’: Mamata slams BJP’s use of Uniform Civil Code as ‘election ploy’

Narendra Modi and Mamata Banerjee.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee strongly criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday, accusing them of using the Uniform Civil Code (UCC) as a political ploy ahead of the elections and asserting that Hindus would not benefit from it.

Speaking at a rally in the minority-dominated Jangipur constituency in Murshidabad district, Banerjee accused the BJP of resorting to divisive tactics in the face of anticipated defeat in the initial phases of polling.

Banerjee stated, “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.”

Banerjee highlighted a growing anti-BJP sentiment nationwide, especially evident after the first two phases of voting.

She confidently proclaimed, “After witnessing the voting pattern and percentage in the first two phases, we can confidently say that the BJP has lost. In the remaining five phases too, they will face a rout. Fear and panic have gripped the BJP. The rout of the saffron camp is only a matter of time.”

She further cautioned voters against supporting the Congress and the CPI(M), branding them as “agents of the BJP” in West Bengal.

Banerjee remarked, “The CPI(M) and the Congress are two eyes of the BJP in West Bengal.”
