Uniform Civil Code: Antony for consensus

Thiruvananthapuram: A consensus should be arrived at on the Uniform Civil Code issue as there is apprehension among people over it, senior Congress leader A K Antony Tuesday said.

"Concern increases when Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah speak about triple talaq," he told reporters here.

"There were differences of opinion on these matters. So a consensus should be reached at after holding discussion," he said.

On the verdict against party leader Oommen Chandy in Bengaluru in the solar scam, he said the former Chief Minister himself had explained that it was issued without hearing him.

On political situation in Kerala, the former Defence Minister said stern action should be taken to curb tension by initiating legal steps against those indulging in violence, he said.

With regard to political clashes between CPI(M) and BJP cadres in the state, Antony said leaders of both these parties should decide that "they did not want martyrs. Both these parties should abstain from indulging in violence".

To a question, he said discussions on party reorganisation in the state have not completed. There was no factionalism among party cadres and leaders should not try for it, he said.

"Efforts should be made to take the party unitedly," he said.

The list of new DCC presidents would be published next month, he said.
