“Mizoram state assembly also had unanimously adopted an official resolution opposing the UCC,” he said.
The ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) MP said that his party has openly opposed the implementation of the UCC as the state chief minister and MNF president Zoramthanga had already written to the Law Commission of India not to formulate legislation in the Parliament.
